With the help of our customers and all of our dedicated staff we were able to raise $2,126.33 for Homes For Our Troops.
Homes For Our Troops is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping those people that give selflessly to their country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries. This organization is committed to assisting severely injured Servicemen and Women, and their immediate families, by raising donations of money, building materials, and professional labor to build a new home or adapt an existing home for handicapped accessibility.
Besides raising more than $2,100 for Homes for our Troops, we also had a lot of Fun and Food for our employees and their families.
The party started with a Delicious Pig Roast and enough hamburgers and hot dogs to feed a small army. For the employees and friends who were looking to settle their personal grudges, we had Sumo wrestling and Jousting. A number of employees took advantage of the jousting to challenge Steve, one of the owners of the company. Steve took on all challengers, with only one defeat.
American Muscle also raffled off a number of prizes in order to raise money for Homes for our Troops. There was a brand new iPhone, a case of Duff energy drink, a case of Cocaine energy drink, and a pair of Phillies tickets.
If that wasn’t enough, we had a Hot Dog Eating Contest. Using the Nathans Hot Dog eating contest rules we had 11 competitors, for a total of 54 hot dogs eaten! Eric Brooks took the gold, swallowing a hefty 12 veggie hot dogs and winning a brand new Char-Broil Grill.
We want to thank everyone who participated! It was a great event, benefiting a great Charity!
