Ft. Walton Beach, FL: A portion of ticket sale proceeds will be donated to Building Homes For Heroes, a Long Island-based charity that builds or modifies homes for severely injured military personnel. “As a former Fisher House manager, I understand intimately the importance of housing the wounded and their families.” says Wharwood. “Building Homes for Heroes has been instrumental in assisting local wounded warriors and their families, so we’d like to assist them in return.”
