On Thursday, March 21, patriotic supporters gathered at Eldon’s Restaurant to make a “Toast to the Troops” and raise funds and awareness for the “Food for Veterans” program of Support Siouxland Soldiers. The Celebrity Bartenders, Col. Brian Miller, Wing Commander of the 185th Air National Guard; Rhonda Capron, Sioux City City Council and Spetler Tonga of the Sioux City Bandits mingled with guests and helped the Eldon’s Bartenders serve signature drinks like Patriotic Punch for a good cause. The event, organized by the Missouri River Runners and Support Siouxland Soldiers, raised over $800 in free-will donations and 20% of the beverage sales (total amount coming soon!) The proceeds from this event will purchase food for Veterans and Military families in the Siouxland area. Food For Veterans distributes food in an on-going basis to our National Hereos. Over 15,000 lbs. of food has been distributed in the last eight months! To get involved and become a volunteer, please email zack@food4veterans.com
