Jacksonville Beach, FL – The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (CFPF) will be hosting another “Raise your Glass for the Fallen” event at Whisky River in the St. Johns Town Center on Wednesday, September 11th, from 5-8pm. Whisky River will be offering food and drink specials to benefit CFPF, along with giveaways and raffles.
“Raise Your Glass for the Fallen” is a new initiative of community events that are being held throughout 2013 and 2014 to raise funds and spread awareness about their foundation. Their mission is to ensure a debt free college education for military children who lost a parent while on active duty.
The “Raise Your Glass for the Fallen” events will be held at popular venues across Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, and St. Augustine. Each event will include special pricing on food and drinks, raffles, and prize giveaways that have been generously donated by local businesses. Every dollar they raise through these public events goes directly towards the Children of Fallen Patriots Grant Program, and their board generously donates to cover the administrative and fundraising costs.
The “Raise Your Glass for the Fallen” event at Whisky River is scheduled on September 11th, because it has become a day to reflect on freedom and those who have fought to preserve it.
For more information about this event call 904.372.9467 or visit The Children of Fallen Patriots website http://www.fallenpatriots.org/. You can also find more information on Facebook at RaiseYourGlassForTheFallen.
About Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation

This includes casualties both before and after 9/11/2001. The organization’s vision is to ensure a debt-free education to all such children by bridging the gap between existing sources of grants and scholarships and the total cost of college.
