Sept. 11th was a magical night at Lucky Strikes in Novi for Golden Future Foundations 3rd Annual “Stars and Strikes” bowling fundraiser for our Veterans sponsored by Ally Financial.  I was invited to host the night and I had the best time ever!! Lucky Strikes was jam packed with Golden Tate’s Detroit Lions teammates, movers and shakers of Detroit, Lions fans, and military family and friends.

The night started with red carpet arrivals!

Guest enjoyed free appetizers and cocktails while bidding on one of kind auction items with all the proceeds going to our Veterans through local Michigan organizations supported by GFF.

Next, Elise and Golden recognized our Veterans and surprised Jacob Loomis who had no idea he was being called up!  Loomis was given a $5K check from GFF.  Here’s a little of his story….

Pets for Vets is one of the programs GFF supports.  What better way to help a vet and a pet by teaming them up together.  Check them out at www.petsforvets.com.

We also learned about the 2-1-1 program for Vets by MVAA  and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) Both were on hand for the big charity event.

Our Vets deal with so much after they come home from war.  We heard some unbelievable stories and I can’t wait to share those videos with you soon.  TJ Lang had a great time bowling with some of our IAVA Vets. The boys took a break and posed for a picture with me!

I want to thank Elise and Golden for inviting me to host their 3rd annual ‘Stars and Strikes” bowling fundraiser for our Veterans.  It was a feel good event full of compassion for our Vets.  The energy in the room and the loving spirit of all the supporters who came out for the cause was infectious!!   I hope y’all make plans to come out next year if you missed it.  It was an AMAZING night!!
