The Yellow Ribbon Fund was created to provide support for injured service Personnel returning home, and being treated at military hospitals such as Walter Reed Army, Bethesda Navel, and others with traumatic wounds sustained in the field of battle.  The Yellow Ribbon Fund meets a tremendous range of critical and specific needs that fall outside the mandate of the nation’s military medical and rehabilitation facilities.  These needs include long and short-term housing for the families of injured service members, transportation, recreation, entertainment, mentoring and internships, holiday meals, and simple companionship during medical treatment and rehabilitation – which often takes months or years and is often grueling and isolating.  Above all, the Yellow Ribbon Fund brings to these injured men and women elements of a normal life with the aim of speeding their recovery.  To find out more about the Yellow Ribbon Fund please visit (See “upcoming Events” for schedule of events, registration and donation information for this event.) 

The Michigan local Yellow Ribbon Fund expects 300 Spectators having a wonderful time watching a hockey game with local soldiers.  The Yellow Ribbon Fund is seeking sponsorships and donations for the hockey game.  All event proceeds are earmarked for returning Michigan veterans are 100% tax deductible as the Yellow Ribbon Funds is a 501(C)(3) organization.  The success of this event depends on contributions and support from local businesses and professionals. 

During the 1st Intermission there will be a special Tribute to local Soldiers set to Deploy to Afghanistan in Late July 2011. Please join us to give them a special sendoff while they raise money and awareness for their fellow injured Soldiers.
