Veteran Fundraiser

NEOSHO, Mo. – The Brotherhood of Warriors is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping better the lives of veterans and their families.

For Co-Owner of TommyHawks FourStates, Jimmy Burgess, it’s personal.

“We’re all veterans ourselves and we recognize the sincere need for veterans whether it be helping them with job placement, resume building, helping them afford clothes utility bills because everyone could use a little bit of help and for veterans it’s a little bit better to do it to each other we feel, to help each other out.”

Burgess held a weekend long tournament, of axe throwing and cornhole to raise money for those veterans.

“Any amount helps, we like to do our part, we have the facility everything at our disposal, to be able to use to help raise money. So it’s not necessarily a goal of monetary value but the ability to know were going to help in some way, form or fashion.”

Army veteran Rodger Alexander joined the cornhole tournament to show his support.

“I’m a patron and I will continue to support this organization, I’m not good at throwing bags or throwing tomahawks but I’m going to do my part.”

Alexander says it’s important to be a part of fundraisers like this as he says the help veterans get from the VA is not always enough.

“It’s so nice to be able to donate money to these guys to allow them to get help outside of the normal avenues so they can get help faster, better help and be taken care of that’s what they deserve.”

The next fundraiser is set for October.
