‘Meet the Heroes’
Short videos and thank you cards of appreciation have been sent to 40 military veterans and their spouses in Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley who will be honored at a pre-Valentine’s Day event on Thursday, Feb. 13 in Pasadena.
The “Meet the Heroes” event is being sponsored by Stonefire Grill, which is catering the dinner that follows a 6 p.m. reception at Castle Catering, 50 E. Green St., Pasadena. Only 100 people will be allowed in. The $50 entry fee will be donated to the Wounded Warriors Project.
“Oftentimes, returning veterans struggle with the challenge to reintegrate into regular, daily family life,” Castle Catering owner Ron Hobbs said in a prepared statement.
“We hope that this community event will serve to show them our appreciation and let them know they are not forgotten,” said Hobbs.
“We are looking forward to working together to raise some much-needed funds for Wounded Warrior,” said Stonefire Grill spokesman Justin Lopez.
