Chehalis Tribes Announce Benefit to Help Returning Combat Veterans
Date:4/7/2008

ROCHESTER, Wash., April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chehalis Confederated Tribes will host a special benefit for returning combat veterans at The Lucky Eagle Casino May 17 and 18, tribal officials announced this week. The fundraising effort, appropriately named "The Return To Honor Veterans Benefit," will provide much needed support for the Dragoon Raiders Soldier and Family Fund and the Freedoms Foundation's Return to Honor Program.

"We're still educating the public about the good works of our beneficiaries and our efforts to help them, but the support we're receiving is truly heartwarming," said Chehalis Tribal Chaiman David Burnett. "We already have sponsorship commitments from Pepsi, Wells Fargo, The Olympian and Uhlmann Motors, and our team is busy contacting others every day."

The Dragoon Raiders Soldier and Family Fund is a local nonprofit organization based in Dupont, Washington, just south of Fort Lewis. The fund supports the soldiers and families of the Stryker Combat Brigade Team known as the 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, United States Army. The organization provides goods and services to the families of soldiers killed in action, soldiers wounded in action, the families of wounded soldiers while the soldier recovers, and the families of deployed soldiers.

The nonprofit Freedoms Foundation is dedicated to upholding the values of freedom and Democracy. The Return to Honor program is designed to help returning veterans cope with the effects of combat stress and to ease the transition back to life in the United States.

The Freedoms foundation will be designating its portion of the proceeds from this benefit to soldiers based in Washington and Oregon.

The benefit weekend will feature a reception and dinner on Saturday, May 17, in addition to a performance of the critically acclaimed "Pieces of War," by Kenny Carnes, a theatrical rendition of the experiences of 12 diverse characters and how each is affected by war. Those interested in sponsorship opportunities or table(s) of 10 are encouraged to contact the Lucky Eagle Casino marketing department at (360) 570-5301.

A repeat performance of "Pieces of War" by Kenny Carnes will follow on Sunday, May 18, at 1:00 pm. Tickets are $20 in advance, and are on sale now at the casino box office. Proceeds and donations will benefit the Dragoon Raiders Soldier and Family Fund, and the Freedoms Foundation's Return to Honor Program. The general public may call toll free 800-720-1788 for additional information, or visit online at http://www.luckyeagle.com.

The Chehalis Tribes' Lucky Eagle Casino and Eagles Landing Hotel are located at 12888 188th Avenue Southwest in Rochester, Washington.
