4th Denim to Diamonds Dance-Hosted by Blue Star Mothers of America Inc.
September 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm$30.00
We are the Blue Star Mothers of America Inc., Lehigh Valley Chapter #PA201. We are mothers of a child or children who are currently serving or who have served in the military and have been honorably discharged. We are hosting our 4th Denim to Diamonds Dance to raise funds to continue our efforts to support our active duty military, veterans and their families. Our dance will be held at the Leithsville Banquet Hall in Hellertown on Saturday, Sept. 16 from 6-11 p.m. The cost is $30.00 per person, which includes entrance, dinner, drinks and door prizes. We will also have tickets for sale at an additional cost for our 50/50 and some really great raffle baskets. I wish I could post pictures of all the great prizes we have, such as a $100 gift card to the Sands Outlets, a $150 Gift Card for Emeril’s Chop House, a chain saw, a drill and much more!
The Blue Star Mothers of the Lehigh Valley Chapter #PA201 is a volunteer service organization whose only requirement for membership is to be a mother who now has, or has had a child/children who are serving in the military or who have been honorably discharged (any family member can be an associate member). This group has been helping our nation’s heroes and their families for more than 10 years here in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding counties. Some of the things we have accomplished include: shipping over 2,000 care packages to deployed troops; sending over 300 care packages to veterans in the Wilkes-Barre VA Hospital; assisting veterans and service members having financial troubles; providing travel funds for the families of injured soldiers; attending deployment ceremonies for the military units in our area; holding welcome home parties for returning troops; and attending many community outreach events in our area.
