The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (GHOF) announced today it will give back a portion of its revenues from the sales of its 2014 Kiss Country Chili Cook-Off t-shirts this Sunday to support our troops serving overseas.
The GHOF has pledged $1 from the sale of each shirt to Forgotten Soldiers Outreach (FSO), Inc., a South Florida-based nationally recognized organization. Forgotten Soldiers has been sending monthly “We Care” packages to our troops serving overseas since 2003. Forgotten Soldiers, www.forgottensoldiers.org, to date has benefited close to 300,000 military personnel from all service branches.
“Forgotten Soldiers parallels our mission to reach out and support those men and women serving our country to ensure that no one is left behind,” said Steve Stock, GHOF president. “Our organization supports a number of worthy charitable causes but I am especially proud of our association with leading military charities.”
Two South Florida active duty servicemen, representing Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, will be introduced at the Sunday event during the “Salute to America” opening ceremonies. They are US Army veterans SFC Charles (Chuck) Waller from Miami and MSG Robert Tallent from West Palm Beach.
Guy Harvey-designed t-shirts are available at three locations at the popular South Florida Chili Cook-Off event held at C.B. Smith Park in Pembroke Pines, which this year will feature artists Rascal Flatts, Joe Nichols, Brantley Gilbert, Thomas Rhett and Cassadee Pope.
