This is the same group that we partnered with for the Ashburn Village Wounded Heroes fishing event.

They are an ALL VOLUNTEER organization.

All funds received are used for the events.

Donations welcome (and tax deductible)!

Let me know if you do....we have 10 boats and need a "guide" for each one to take out one of our participants.
