Events

There are many events and fundraisers throughout the year to attend, volunteer, participate and donate. The Guest House has three major fundraising events each year: the Annual Campaign raffle ticket sales, the Newstalk 780 KOH Radiothon, and our newest Fashion Show event honoring women in the military.  View photos of all our wonderful events on our Facebook page.

Many community organizations generously produce fun events on the House’s behalf. These include motorcycle poker runs, golf tournaments, classic car shows, cribbage tournaments, and so much more!  Watch our Events Page for frequent updates,  like our Facebook page, and join our mailing list to learn about our coming events and how to get involved


Boots Meets Fashion, Fashion Meets Fun—  Friday, October 16th

We were excited to see you at this year’s event, but alas, it is COVID-19 times. With a heavy heart, I am writing to tell you we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.
Even though this year’s event is canceled, we have some inspiring news to share with you! Our fabulous sponsors have all decided to continue their support through a matching fund campaign!
The Fashion Show is one of our largest fundraisers of the year. The funding from this event helps us continue to provide essential care for our Veterans and their families. Without this event, we are projected to fall significantly short of our budgeted income for 2020. But you can help! Will you consider making a $50 donation (equal to the Boots Meet Fashion, Fashion Meets Fun ticket price) today in place of attending the event?
