Scottsdale, AZ, October 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Scott & Renee Burke to host fundraiser supporting wounded service members through Wounded Warrior Project™.
Scott & Renee Burke announced today plans to donate money from their Halloween Party "Decade of Decadence" to assist service members who have been injured in the line of duty. Proceeds from the "decade of decadence" party will be donated to the nonprofit organization Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), and will support a full range of programs and services for this generation of injured veterans and their families.
Over 47,000 servicemen and women have been injured in the recent military conflicts. In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 are believed to have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.
WWP’s 18 programs and services are uniquely structured to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement.
Scott & Renee Burke have invited more than 200 local and out of state guests to their Scottsdale home for a Halloween 80's theme party to support wounded veterans.
Scott Burke served in the United States Marine Corps from 1982 and was honorably discharged in 1988.
Through the generosity of several local business owners we are able to offer some unbelievable items to be offered at our silent auction that include box seats to an upcoming Cardinals game, luxury accommodations in Rocky Point and Torreon Country Club.
Guests will enter the party on the red carpet through a 8' foot tall tower of Rubik’s Cubes.
The party titled “Decade of Decadence” offers guests many activities including, dancing to 80’s music and videos, Casino room with Blackjack, and an Arcade with Ping Pong, Donkey Kong and Ms. PacMan.
