Weesatche 4 Warriors event raises money and awareness for veterans, veteran organizations
By Cameron Wallace
Local veterans, their families, first responders, and veterans organizations all benefitted from Saturday’s Weesatche 4 Warriors event at the Weesatche Community Center.
Classic cars were on display; and music throughout the day was provided by local celebrity and national Country/Gospel artist, Vicki Cross.
It was the Armadillo races, though, which provided a sort of “spectacle” to the day. According to Denise Hiebner, President of Weesatche 4 Warriors, races may become a staple of the event.
Hiebner says that the annual event provides a day where “veterans and first responders can come and talk to each other, feel like they fought for something, have a free meal, and enjoy the day with their families.”
Weesatche 4 Warriors doesn’t charge an admission fee, instead, accept free-will donations. One of the big money-makers for the event was their gun auction. “It was such a success last year, that we did it again this year, and we had sponsors who covered the cost of the guns, so it’s one-hundred percent of the funds raised go directly to local veterans organizations.”
