Annual Army of Hope Fundraiser Results

The Army of Hope is a program of the Florida State Elks Association established in 2007. Its mission is to provide aid assistance to the families of deceased, disabled, and deployed members of the military.

The families of Florida active-duty military personnel, military reservists, Coast Guard, National Guard and/or their dependents are eligible. Active-duty members stationed in Florida with their dependents qualify as Florida residents.

Since its inception, the Army of Hope has raised $620,208.29 and distributed $508,591.35 for families of deployed military members. The help you give through the Florida Elks’ Army of Hope allows the military members to safely concentrate on their duties without worrying about their families at home. The Army of Hope also assists returning veterans with costs to re-establish their civilian life after deployment.

The event featured the fabulous Bobby Owen Band.

$200 was raised from the 50-50 and cake sale. Proceeds from the dinner are yet to be determined.
