Wounded soldiers benefit set for Sept.19 at Deer Run

(Aug. 13, 2015) Tickets are selling fast for Star Charities’ annual wounded soldiers benefit, to be held at the Deer Run Golf Club in Berlin, Saturday, Sept. 19 at 5 p.m.
This year’s event features a special “Dinner with Johnny Cash” theme, with standup comedy, music by David Stone and food by Frontier Town’s Lazy River Saloon.
Deer Run CEO Ed Colbert will be the host of the event. Tickets are $25 and a cash bar will be provided.
Anna Foultz, founder of Star Charities, said proceeds would be added to the nonprofit’s January Beef and Beer fundraiser, which benefits wounded veterans in the state.
“That covers a lot of territory and we work real hard on both events,” she said. “The soldiers are very important to us.” Foultz added that a third fundraiser for the Worcester County Veteran’s Memorial was in the works, likely in the fall.
Only 100 seats are available for the September fundraiser.
“We’ve already sold quite a few tickets, but we need to sell more,” Foultz said.
Foultz became interested in veteran’s affairs because of her late husband, who started a “Gifts for Our Soldiers” benefit overseas more than 10 years ago.
“He was Secret Service and we didn’t know about it until he died,” she said. “I found all that out. He was overseas in China, Burma, India and all that, and he was really worried about the servicemen not getting the care they should. We still do [Gifts for Our Soldiers] in October, collecting any kind of donations for the whole month, and the National Guard comes and picks it all up.
“It’s a big job without his help, but we manage it,” Foultz added. “We’re going to do the best we can until we can’t do it anymore. My heart goes out to the soldiers 100 percent.”
