HOOAH Deer Hunt for Heroes is a none for profit organization that seeks to reduce the suicide rate among veterans by organizing hunting and fishing trips in central and southern Illinois.
The Clinton American Legion Women's Auxilary is hosting a fundraiser for the group. Jean Rogers explains they got connected with them a few years ago and says they are a great organization doing great things for veterans in need.
Rogers explains the ladies helped out with one of the events they held a few years ago and then decided to host the fundraiser. She says the veterans the group helps are very open and easy to talk to, making it worthwhile to give their time and money.
The fundraiser is Saturday at the Legion building at 219 North Elizabeth Street. It will be a chili and sandwich fundraiser from 5 pm to 9 pm. There will also be a silent and live auction as a part of the event.
