why purchase a ticket for
the Pearly Gates Veterans Benefit?
The Veterans Benefit is an annual fundraiser sponsored by the Vietnam Veterans of America 224, Honor & Valor, and the Combat Vets Association. All proceeds of the fundraiser go toward assisting veterans and their families in Northeastern Wisconsin who have served our country.
In 2015 The Pearly Gates Veterans Benefit established an annual scholarship for qualifying Veterans or their dependents at UW-Green Bay and NWTC.
Some of the objectives we hold dear include improving the lives of those who served in uniform during the nation’s longest and most divisive war, promoting veteran health care, promoting resolution of POW/MIA issues, insuring agent orange treatment and compensation, assisting incarcerated and homeless veterans and veterans and their families who are in need of assistance, supporting veteran memorials and observances, promote youth and family activities and raise funds to help all veterans.
For over 15 years, the Pearly Gates Benefit fundraisers have proven helpful to our Veterans in need. Take a moment to read some of the messages we’ve received from grateful participants and recipients. We couldn’t ask for anything more than this!
