On Veterans Day Helping Hands for Freedom held a benefit concert at Lusso Fine Motorcars in Scottsdale. Ultimate Bon Jovi and Don’t Stop Believing Journey cover bands entertained more than 300 guests. The lively Nov. 11 evening raised more than $85,000 to assist veterans and Gold Star families with fundamental life needs.
Cater Phoenix provided a variety of heavy appetizers and the silent auction offered a wide variety of rock-and-roll and sports memorabilia opportunities. Michael LaHaye of Fumar Cigars and Friends of Freedom was handing out cigars with bands representing the five branches of service.
Helping Hands for Freedom is a Phoenix-based nonprofit organization with the primary mission of assisting the families of the fallen, wounded and deployed.
Coming up, the Heroes Golf Tournament will be held at Moon Valley County Club on April 23, 2018. The proceeds will support the organization’s life enrichment and life emergency needs programs, and its sports and education camps.
