Other speakers at the event included Marine Maj. Gen. Paul Brier, vice commander for Marine Forces Command and Earl Ray Tomblin, governor of West Virginia and Joe Manchin, West Virginia State Senator. (Photo by Cpl. Michael Ito)

Give your friends, family, co-workers, fellow veterans and others a meaningful and fun way to show their support of the Hershel “Woody” Williams Medal of Honor Foundation through an event. At the same time, you are raising awareness of the work the Foundation carries out to promote American values and the qualities of the American way of life through increased awareness, education, behavior and example.

A fundraiser can be as easy as hosting a Jeans for GIs day at your work or charging a late fee when someone is late for a meeting/class or setting up spare change collection jars; or having Woody as a Guest or Speaker at your campus or school, club or organization.

Once you have your idea and would like to begin to plan, please email our Foundation Team Members.
