Description


Party with a Purpose and support your local American Legion Riders chapter as they raise funds for youth scholarships.

American Legion Riders chapters are well known for their charitable work, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local children's hospitals, schools, veterans homes, severely wounded service members and scholarships. Since 2006, Riders nationwide have participated in The American Legion Legacy Run to annually raise money for the Legacy Scholarship Fund, established to provide scholarships to children of U.S. military personnel killed since Sept. 11, 2001.

The Party with a Purpose event is a new fundraising opportunity for The American Legion Riders of Post 46. This Party with a Purpose is your way to contribute to this work while enjoying appetizers, wine and social hour. Chuck Parins, one of the event organizers and Chapter Director says that the Party with a Purpose will help support a scholarship similar to the American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, which awards aid for undergraduate or post-graduate college students whose parents died on active-duty or incurred a VA disability of 50 percent or higher. “We want the money raised from this Sprout event to stay local as much as possible and benefit youth of service people in our community who have struggled” Parins said. “We want them to know that our community is here to help them make higher education a possibility.”

The event will also showcase youth in the community through musical performances and an auction of Made By Faith jewelry. The appetizers served will also utilize products made by Austin’s Acres. Both Made By Faith and Austin’s Acres are spearheaded by young entrepreneurs who frequently vend at the Sprout Growers & Makers Marketplace.

Tickets are $10 and include appetizers and wine. All proceeds from the event benefit the American Legion Legacy Fund.

Catered by Prairie Bay Grill.

Sponsored by ArtPlace America and Region Five Development Commission
