Dinner Fundraiser to help Veterans Tuesday 8/25

Middle Smithfield Township is hosting an all you can eat $15 dinner fundraiser for veterans Tuesday night, August 25th, 5 – 8:30pm at the Whispering Pines Banquet Hall in East Stroudsburg in support of Neil Davis’ “Walk Across America”.

Neil Davis is walking across America to raise funds for two veterans’ charities, (Combat Stress [UK] and The Wounded Warrior Project [USA]) and to raise awareness of combat related stress and PTSD (post traumatic stress syndrome).

While in the Poconos, Neil contracted an infection in one of his legs, commanding that he rest and heal before continuing.  One of Middle Smithfield’s businesses, the Pocono Palace resort, gave Neil a complimentary stay while he recuperated.  To make good use of Neil’s time here before he continues his walk on Wednesday, Middle Smithfield Township is hosting an all you can eat for $15 dinner fundraiser Tuesday night, 8/25, from 5 – 8:30p, at the Whispering Pines Banquet Hall located in the Country Club of the Poconos golf course.

In addition to having as many folks as possible come out and have dinner, the township is looking for anyone who can help them with this fundraiser — whether it be providing entertainment, providing raffle prizes, providing prepared food for the dinner, helping out on Tuesday night with serving and cooking, getting the word out, or even simply making a donation to Neil’s cause.  No matter what your time or resources are, there’s a way to help our veterans!
