The Helping Heroes Extravaganza is one of We Heart Veterans’ most important fundraising events. The group's goal is to raise $50,000 to help fund the programs and services it provides to local aging wartime veterans and their widowed spouses. These programs and services are vital in improving their quality of life. While the Extravaganza is a fundraiser, it is also a time to celebrate and honor veterans for the selfless sacrifices they made and continue to make on behalf of America.
