On April 28, 2018, VFW Post 8672 held their 5th annual Quarter Auction!
The quarter auction is their biggest fundraiser, and helps them support through programs such as McVets, Unmet Needs, Gold Star Mother’s and Families, Loch Raven and Perry Point VA Hospitals, The VFW National Home for Children Maryland House and many other worthy causes, as well as sending care packages to our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
This year they had a goal of having over 100 items for raffle, and with the support of the donations, they were able to achieve that! Tickets were $5.00 in advance and $7.00 at the door, which gave bidders 2 paddles to bid with.
This year they raised over $10,000 to support the needs of veterans, their families and their causes.
The featured benefactors from this year’s auction were 501©3 charities Paws for Purple Hearts and Heroes on the Water. Both charities, support vets with PTSD, mobility issues and/or traumatic brain injuries. The Auxiliary was also able to make a donation to the Young Marines thanks to the silent auction, and donate food and toiletries to McVets, an organization in Baltimore city which assists homeless vets.
