It’s time for all Warriors and Patriots to band together and go to war against the mental health issues within our Warrior community.
What a HUGE success this year was!
Over $100,000.00, net, raised for Wheelchairs for Warriors. We could not have done this without our gracious sponsors and supporters!
The event kicked off with a Hero Concert and a on the spot donation of $12,500.00 to purchase a mobility device for a warrior! American Idol, Bo Bice killed it with the National Anthem as well as rocking the house with Six Gun Sally. When Ryan Weaver took the stage the crowd was ready from some All-American Patriotic who loves American Warriors music! The crowd at Ace Cafe was ready from Molly Hatchet, and they did not disappoint us at all!
Saturday we had an all-out Warrior vehicle show with airboats, motorcycles, hotrods, classics, and customs. A police K9 demo was also down twice throughout the day, and even John "Tig" TIegen had the opportunity to turn his dog loose on the guy in the bite suit!
As always, Gala Night did not disappoint, our guest speakers had the attendees laughing, crying, and ready to dig into their pockets for the live auctions!
The weekend ended with the fantastic, Airboat gator hunt with former Amry POW, Jessica Lynch... yes, she got a huge gator!
Please make plans to attend Warrior Weekend, 2023 which will be held September, 8th thru the 10th, 2023 in Orlando, Florida.
Raised $18,000 for the Warrior Shield Foundation
On July 30th and 31st of 2021, we held a fundraiser for the 14th Hour Foundation. The 14th Hour Foundation is dedicated to honoring and supporting individuals and their families who have served and sacrificed to protect the American homeland.
We had a phenomenal 1 day and 2 night event! With the help of our patriotic sponsors and supports of the Shadow Warrior Riders Motorcycle Club, Inc, we were able to raise over $70,000 for the 14th Hour Foundation's wonderful mission.
We kicked things off at The Abbey, in downtown Orlando, Friday night on the 30th, with performances from the country music band Blackbird Anthem and country singer Ryan Weaver. There was plenty to eat and drink in Downtown Orlando, while enjoying the wonderful, live country music performances.
Saturday morning, on the 31st, started with an Orlando Police-escorted motorcycle ride, starting and ending at the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum, in Titusville, FL. After the ride, participants were able to enjoy a virtual, tactical simulation experience, as well as time on a shooting range with Kris Paronto.
Saturday evening kicked off the cocktail and dine-in party, which involved an inspirational video, outlining the contributions the 14th Hour Foundation has made within our veteran community, as well as speeches from our guests of honor and war heroes Kris Paronto, Don Jenkins and Jessica Lynch.
Thank you to all of our sponsors and VIPs that made this event possible. We could not do this without your generosity and patriotism to our nation!
