From staff reports
Nationally renowned veterans charity, the Boot Campaign, is coming to Trussville in May for a fundraiser called “Bama’s Boots, Bands & Bikes.” The May 15-17 weekend fundraiser is centered on promoting patriotism and raising financial support for the military community.
Several festivities will take place around Birmingham on May 15 and 16, with the finale taking place in Trussville on May 17.
On Sun., May 17, a charity motorcycle ride beginning at Harley-Davidson in Pelham and ending at Riders Harley-Davidson in Trussville will conclude the weekend of festivities. Honored guests will include family members of those that fought and died with Marcus Luttrell during Operation Red Wing who were portrayed in the movie Lone Survivor. A VIP party will follow at the Harley-Davidson in Trussville with a meet and greet with Flanagan and Boone, and a silent auction.
Net proceeds from Bama’s Boots, Bands & Bikes benefit the Boot Campaign, a national 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to promoting patriotism for America and our military community; raising awareness of the unique challenges service members face during and post-service; and providing assistance to military personnel, past and present, and their families.
