On February 10, 2009 from 6pm -11pm, The Greene Turtle in Mount Airy, MD will be hosting the "Funds For Friends" event. 10% of all the proceeds from business brought into the restaurant during those hours will be donated to local charity, Maryland For Our Military.
Nathaniel & I think the world of this group. In fact, we donated 100% of the proceeds of the 2008 Thank You Calendar to Kathy and the work she does at MFOM. Many groups support soldiers, but MFOM is unique because of the truly personal attention each soldier and his/her family gets.
According to Kathy (who heads MFOM), support for our troops has gone down in the past year. In fact, MFOM has had more requests for help than ever before locally and from Iraq and Afghanistan. These soldiers need all the support they can get. So please spread the word about this event and stop by to enjoy some Greene Turtle fare (we adore the queso pretzel appetizers and Nathaniel thinks the beer list is amazing) while putting your meal money on double duty as a fundraiser for the troops.
Several Marines and soldiers from Walter Reed will be coming to the event to enjoy the evening. So stop by, have dinner and take this time to say "Thank You" to those who would put themselves in harm's way to protect our way of life!
See you there
