On Saturday March 14, Heroes Helping the Heartland will be hosting their first fundraiser auction at the Memphis VFW at 123 W. Monroe Street to raise money to purchase a service dog for an 11-year-old amputee.
Two big tickets items that will be given away during the fundraiser are a 5-day African safari hunt, and the second being a basketball hoop with a gooseneck pole with other items to auction. Those who donated the trip will be at the benefit to explain the trip in full detail.
