globalhopenow.org Global Hope, together with the American Legion Riders Post 80, hosted a fundraiser on July 30, 2011 to benefit two essential local organizations that assist, specifically, veterans facing critical challenges...

• The Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans (MSHV) in Wheaton, IL

With the mission “Serving Those Who Served the Nation”, this program helps veterans transition from homelessness to independent living within a two-year time frame (the average stay is 6 months). The program is run 24/7 by a dedicated staff of professionals who provide a wide range of intensive one-on-one support services. Most impressive is their 70% success rate (well above national averages).

• The Hines Physically Challenged Sports Committee

With the goal of “motivating veterans to overcome physical challenges and boost morale”, this program recruits and trains all ages and disabilities in therapeutic recreational activities. Many go on to attend one of the Veteran’s Affairs National Competitions/Clinics.

A beautiful sunny day saw a steady flow of guest file onto the grounds to honor and support our local American Veterans. Members of Legion Riders Post 80 wheeled each veteran from the Hines Hospital bus, one by one, out into an adoring crowd who clapped passionately as each passed by.

This was no ordinary gathering. It was less a social event-and more accurately a heart event-with a delicious BBQ, a thirst-quenching beer garden and two musical groups that kept everyone stompin' and swayin'.

By day's end over $10,000 was raised, and thanks to a generous donor match, our grand total soared over $20,000!
