Never Quit Never Forget

The Never Quit Never Forget event was birthed in the hearts of Matt and Danielle Reames after reading Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell.  The book gives a personal account of the many sacrifices that are being made by all of our military since the War on Terrorism began.  They were moved by the selfless sacrifices of these great men and knew at that point they had to give back.

Along with a couple of dedicated friends they held their first Never Quit Never Forget Gala in Baton Rouge as a way to benefit the Lone Survivor Foundation and Special Ops Survivors.  The gala raised over $84,000 which was divided equally between the two organizations after expenses.  They saw first hand how every dollar raised and donated to these organizations went to care for the surviving spouses. 

This year they continue to work on raising funds for organizations that support wounded warriors and families of the fallen.  Please plan to attend their second gala on November 7th at the Renaissance Hotel in Baton Rouge.  Proceeds will benefit Wounded Wear and Special Ops Survivors.  Let's give a little back to those who have given so much.  I promise you will be moved and grateful for these soldiers, their families, and the surviving spouses.
