Legion Auxiliary Hosting Fundraiser for HOOAH Deer Hunt for Heroes Saturday

Come out to the Abagail in Clinton this Saturday and enjoy some Italian beef and pulled pork and support a local group's efforts to build up veterans in our communities.


The Clinton Legion Auxiliary is hosting a dinner fundraiser with a live and silent auction to raise money for HOOAH Deer Hunt for Heroes. Jean Rogers with the Auxiliary says they will have information available at the event if you'd like to learn more about their outings for veterans.



Owner of the Abagail, Lance Schmidt was able to attend the last two fundraisers for the HOOAH Deer Hunt for Heroes as he was the auctioneer and felt so moved by their efforts he wanted to step up and do more so he arranged for the local car dealers to donate a vehicle as a part of this auction.



HOOAH Deer Hunt for Heroes provides veterans from all parts of the state and midwest a place to come and enjoy the outdoors with other veterans. Rogers believes the beauty of what they do is get veterans connected and allow them an outlet to talk about their experiences and hopefully that reduces the suicide rate among veterans who have returned home from active duty.



According to Rogers, their fundraiser has continued to grow, to the point they are moving to a bigger venue at The Abagail. She the first year they raised $2,000 and last year they were able to present them with $7,600. 


The event is this Saturday evening from 5 pm to 9 pm. Dinner is by donation only and there will be a variety of live and silent auction items to bid on.
