Event description

Description


Please join us as we celebrate our 4th annual Colorado Springs American Warrior Initiative. Previous local efforts have supported a veteran owned business, helped with the renovation of a Gold Star Mother's home, and raised funds for service dog training for 5 local veterans with PTSD. This one-night event aims to demonstrate how our community and businesses can come together to show our appreciation to the military for defending our freedom.

All donations from this event will be used to assist local veterans with their transition back into civilian life. They’ve served us. So it’s time we do our small part to serve—and thank—them.The mission of Fairway’s American Warrior Initiative, a non-profit organization (501c3), is to educate, encourage and inspire Americans to give back to our active duty and veteran clients. Please check out the videos on www.AmericanWarriorInitiative.com to see how AWI has changed the lives of many of the wounded heroes of America.

Guest Speaker:

Karen Vaughn, Gold Star mother of fallen Navy SEAL Chief Aaron Carson Vaughn (SEAL Team VI), will share her intimate story of losing her only son to the War on Terror. With hundreds of national appearances, Karen's goal is to move audiences to a deeper understanding of what drives the heart of those who serve us and what our response should be, as a nation, to such selfless sacrifice for the benefit of freedom. Karen is the bestselling author of World Changer: A Mother's Story. She's met with three Presidents, is a frequent guest on national news outlets, and earned a guest speaker position on opening night of the 2016 Republican National Convention.
