Raising Funds to Support Our Veterans

Twenty-five million veterans are living among us today.
These men and women selflessly set aside their civilian lives
to put on the uniform and serve us. Steve Buyer

Saratoga County Rural Preservation  Company has been working hard for the past two years to bring a transitional home for homless female veterans in Saratoga County... and they're almost there. They still need your support to raise funds for renovations and furnishings so they can make Guardian House a reality. So I hope you'll save the date to attend this fundraiser for a worthwhile cause (and music by a terrific band too!)


Save the Date – April 15th!
On Friday April 15, 2011, WPYX and the Saratoga County Rural Preservation Company will be hosting a fundraising event at Vapor Night Club at the Saratoga Casino and Raceway. Proceeds from this event will go to the Guardian House Project, a transitory facility for homeless women veterans.
Door will open at 5:30 pm and a $10.00 donation is requested. Entertainment, beginning at 7:00pm, features Jay Yeager and the Audiostars. Between 5:30 and 7:00, Bud, Bud Lite and Michelob Ultra will be available at $1.06 each, compliments of PYX 106. A silent auction will run from 5:30 to 8:00pm.
The Guardian House, which is located at 1214 Route 50, Ballston Spa, will house up to 11 women veterans, who can stay up to two years. The program will be modeled after our male veteran’s facility, also in Ballston Spa, which has been operating successfully for the past 22 years. Funds are needed to help complete the furnishing of the facility and to perform some renovation projects.
We look forward to seeing all of our friends and supporters for a fun, end of the work week event, which will also support a good cause!
