#VetNoise raising money for veteran-related organizations
A couple months ago, Barbara Sgueglia, Director/Associate Broker of the Hampton Roads Military Relocation Team (HRMRT) at 1st Class Real Estate in Virginia Beach, had an idea -- just something that was floating around among so many of her other wonderful ideas, but she knew it was glimmer of something great.
"We used to have a small event once a month called 'Cocktails for a Cause' that I wanted to build on. I thought we could do something on a bigger scale, and raise more money for charities than we had in the past, " Barbara said.
Beer always makes things bigger.
So she contacted Thomas Wilder at Young Veteran's Brewing Company and pitched her idea to him: if they would host a monthly event and give some of their sales to a veteran-related charity (a different one each month), she and her team would work to get the real estate community involved, provide marketing and some raffle prizes, with the ultimate goal of raising as much money as possible for the chosen charity.
Thomas's answer: a resounding YES! Not only yes, but he envisioned an event bigger than Barbara had dreamed. So with Thomas's go ahead, and a bit of brainstorming within an HRMRT meeting, Vet Noise was born. After two months of planning, momentum has built to bring the inaugural Vet Noise event during a
special (and quite fitting) Memorial Day weekend. There was a tremendous turn-out, and the event raise more than $1,000 for Wounded Wear. It was a remarkable show of support!
Vet Noise was born to raise money for worthwhile organizations, so we hope to see all of our Hampton Roads friends on Sunday, June 29th, from 3pm-8pm, at Young Veteran's Brewing Company, to raise money for this month's recipient: Vetshouse.
