Heroes Nght Out

Eagle for Our Heroes
12 X 16 Oil on Canvas
When I met the founders of Heroes Night Out, Wes and Judy they were all smiles. They give from their hearts every single day. All the heroes are family to this couple and they give to all their children. This organization is created to give veterans and their family just a few hours of healing, their hearts, family, and spirits. The organization's mission is simple : "To provide our wounded heroes and their families dinners, a day or night at a sporting event, amusement park, or any other venue that gives them a well served break from their every day routine while recovering from their injuries...To show our appreciation and support we provide our Heroes with a Heroes Night Out Appreciation wallet. Each wallet includes up to six (6) $50.00 gift cards to local restaurants., providing our Heroes and their families some valuable and well deserved family time and an opportunity to heal their hearts." In appreciation for all they do for our wounded heroes I presented Wes and Judy with a painting of an eagle with dog tags in it's claws.
