The inaugural bash benefits Green Zone Housing (GZH) who provides permanent housing to our homeless and at-risk veterans. The new members of GZH will be project managers of their own home construction. While constructing these new homes, veteran project managers will be exposed to various trades such as welding, plumbing, electrical, and finishing work. Each homeowner will then assist incoming veterans to build their homes, which will collectively become a Green Zone Community.

In addition, each table will have a place to write or draw Christmas messages to be sent to our servicemen overseas! To be a part of this great opportunity as an attendee, individual tickets and tables can be  purchased at
