NWA Natural's Wings for Our Troops Fundraiser 2017

Arvest Ballpark and the NWA Natural's community partnership team invited us to have a fundraiser Saturday, July 29th.  Whatever tickets we sold we got to keep 50% and the allowed us to have a table set up to share information about what we do and about our 4th Annual Squirrel Hunt coming up in January 2018. 
The weather couldn't have been better and the staff at the Arvest Ballpark were amazing.  Everything was organized and ran like clock work. 
Tebo was asked to throw out the first pitch (see picture below) and Tia was asked to do a radio interview.  It was a really cool experience.


We had a good turnout of friends and board members and other co-workers that were supporting not only WFOT, but our local Double A team.  The staff upgraded our seats to 3rd base side so we weren't in the sun and it was a perfect location.


I want to give a special thanks to Mark Zaiger, Sales Director, for all he did to make this event successful.  We raised just under $3,000.00 between ticket sales and straight donations.  That will buy several tickets for our service members.


We had a chance to honor a few Veterans as well as a Marine currently serving.  It was quite the treat that our currently serving Marine was home on leave from deployment that weekend and wanted to participate in this fundraiser so we were more than honored to have him join us on the field. (see picture below)


Thank you to everyone that supported us and came out to be a part of this fundraiser.  Hopefully this will turn into an annual event, but if it doesn't, it was a great time had this year.
