The Veteran Beer Company is proud to announce a partnership in support of Medinah Patriot Day and the Illinois Patriot Education Fund.
Medinah Patriot Day
Medinah Patriot Day is an annual golf event held at the historic Medinah Country Club right here in the Chicago area. The event raises money for the Illinois Patriot Education Fund and provides scholarships for disabled military Veterans and their families.
Why is the Veteran Beer Company so passionate about their cause?
Illinois Patriot Educaiton Fund
Over 260 Illinois armed service members have lost their lives for our country, and over 1,500 Illinois armed service members have been wounded. Only 15% of the families of wounded soldiers and sailors qualify for current Veteran education funds. For those service members who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, the average age of their children is 6-8 years old, and the family income is only $28,000. We feel a responsibility to help fill the educational gaps for these families, and we believe in the mission of Medinah Patriot Day and the leadership at the Illinois Patriot Education Fund to make it happen.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone for the support you have given us. Our team is very humbled, and it is an honor to serve you.
