BOSH Global Services to host 3rd Annual BBQ Lunch Raising Funds for Wounded Warriors

Newport News, VA - BOSH Global Services hosts their third annual "BBQ Lunch for Wounded Warriors" on October 4th, from 11:00 to 1:00 at 1 Compass Way in Newport News. The fundraiser, open to the public, benefits Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) and the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program (VWWP), non-profit organizations dedicated to honoring, empowering and assisting wounded service members.

The outpouring of support for this event has great impact each year. In its first two years, this BOSH event resulted in total contributions exceeding $40,000! BOSH employees, owners and supporters work together to welcome the community and celebrate our nation's heroes.

The menu includes slow-roasted pork barbecue on a bun, coleslaw, baked beans, dessert and drinks. Like last year, BOSH plans for a sunny afternoon on the lawn outside BOSH's corporate headquarters. Attendees will enjoy lunch, live music, and an opportunity to recognize the dedication of our nation's service members.

Tickets, on sale August 26, are available at the BOSH office and website (www.boshgs.com), or from any BOSH employee. Call 757-271-3428 for details, and secure tickets early as the tickets sold out in 2012!
