GOLD STAR FAMILY CHARITY EVENT
November 16 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Dog-Tag Entertainment is a local veteran owned DJ company that began with former and current military personnel wanting to serve and build community. Recently, the company has grown and has been able to better serve the community by donating our time and services to a variety of organizations. Our company has been able to provide DJ and Karaoke services to local Legions and help connect veterans with their communities. By doing so, we have realized the lack of awareness and support surrounding the families of our fallen soldiers and brothers.
We would like to bring the camaraderie from the brotherhood of our fallen soldiers to the family and loved ones they left behind. Specifically, we would like to bring awareness to the definition of Gold Star Families as well as rise as much financial support as we can to help as many families as we can. What is a Gold Star Family you ask? “The term “Gold Star” describes a family member who has lost a loved one in military service. The Gold Star first made an appearance during World War I after being placed over a service flag’s blue star when a service member was killed in combat.”
Dog-Tag Entertainment & the Iowa City American Legion will be hosting a Gold Star Families event on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at the Legion. This event will be open to the public as well as Gold Star Family recipients. There will be food, Silent Auction, 50/50 raffle, music & Guest speakers. We are looking for monetary donations and silent auction donations. All donations can either be dropped off or mailed to Iowa City American Legion, 3016 Muscatine Ave, Iowa City 52240, attention Tara. If you have any questions or would like to make arrangements for donations o be picked up, please feel free to contact Tara at (319) 351-1902. Please make checks payable to the Iowa City American Legion with a memo of Gold Star Family Event.
Thank you for your time and helping us bring awareness and financial support to local Gold Star Families. Thank you for your consideration to give back to the families whose loved ones gave the ultimate sacrifice. We hope to see you on the 16th.
