Saratoga WarHorse Foundation Fundraising News

DeCrescente Distributing and Saratoga Brewery along with DZ Restaurants and The BarrelHouse raised more than $10,000 for the Saratoga Warhorse Foundation through a campaign that included coaster and pinup sales. The campaign ran through the racing season when the BarrelHouse held a Travers Day party and then into the end of September when DZ Restaurants had their second annual Meet the Chefs event.

On October 2nd the Saratoga-Wilton Elks held its 5th Annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction for Veterans. Saratoga WarHorse was presented with a check for $4500.00 at the dinner.

On October 3rd Saratoga WarHorse attended a Yellow Ribbon Event welcoming home members of the 105th Civil Engineering Squadron. This event was conducted as part of the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program, a program put together by Joint Services Support.

Also, On 3 October, 2015, Saratoga WarHorse was honored to be part of a “White” Ribbon event. The 109th Airlift Wing hosted the “White” Ribbon event. The event was similar to a Yellow Ribbon event, but was hosted for the men and women of the 109th AW that deploy to Antarctica, annually. This particular event was significant because it was attended by new personnel that have not deployed to theater ops, or have deployed multiple times to Antarctica, but have never been offered the opportunity to attend a Yellow Ribbon event due to the deployment schedule they follow.
