I’m working on a story regarding a group of U.S. war veterans who have started a program to help fellow vets deal with PTSD. I’ll have more on this next week. Great people and a wonderful, yet under-the-radar, cause. In the meantime, below is some info letting people know about the group’s fundraiser, which is slated this weekend:

A fundraising dinner benefiting a program that helps combat veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder is scheduled for Saturday.

All proceeds of the event will go toward Veterans First Fly Fishing, a program that uses fly-fishing activities to improve veterans’ focus and motor skills while steering them away from paths to addiction and self-destructive behavior.

The event will be held at Fremont Elks Lodge at 38991 Farwell Drive The fundraiser’s no-host bar opens at 5 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m.

Individual tickets will cost $50, while a table for 10 will be $450.
