||Banquet date is November 4, 2017. 100% of the proceeds benefits our service members. Money collected is given to them throughout the year to support and our banquet is the celebration for what has been accomplished. We are requesting donations and sponsors to assist with the event and to support the Missouri Patriot Paws. We are planning on having a raffle, live auction, silent auction and many opportunities throughout the evening. As you all are planning your charitable contributions through the year, please remember the Missouri Patriot Paws. This was established to provide the training of service dogs for Missouri Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)/Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). We believe that the bond between a Veteran and his/her service dog can contribute greatly to the Veteran's emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical healing. We work to provide a trained service dog available to any Veteran with PTSD/TBI, regardless of financial situation or other challenges. The organization will work with a Veteran who already has a dog with whom he/she has an established bond. If the client does not have his/her own dog, we can assist in assessing and choosing a dog from a local shelter, or rescue group. This is our third annual banquet and in two years we have raised close to $10,000 for them. We need this to continue with approval of service dogs through the VA. Tickets to the banquet are also available for purchase. It is a wonderful meal of pork, brisket and sides, desserts and drinks. The tickets are $10.00 apiece or you can purchase a table of 8 for $100.00 with entry into a table captain, only, raffle. We also have sponsorship packages available. $100 for Bronze, $200 for Silver, $300 for Gold and $500 for Platinum. With the Platinum, you receive a table for 8 individuals to attend. Numerous raffles will be taking place throughout the evening . If you would like to provide a donation or if you would like to purchase tickets, please, contact us to arrange for pickup or delivery of donations and tickets, etc. We are very grateful for what you are able to do. We will have live entertainment as well. It is a night you won’t forget.
