On Friday, October 29th and Saturday, October 30th, the Proffitt Brothers Foundation is hosting the American Heroes Benefit and Festival on Annapolis City Dock to show support for America’s veterans, service-members, and their families and to raise money for veterans’ charitable organizations.

“After what happened in Afghanistan, America’s veterans, service members, and their families are distressed and worried that their sacrifices were in vain. So, we are organizing a two-day event to demonstrate to America’s warriors and their families that they have a sea of support and we honor their sacrifice,” explained Vince Proffitt, Founder of Proffitt Brothers Foundation.

Proceeds from the event will go to veterans’ charitable organizations, including Annapolis-based Valhalla Sailing Project and Live Water Foundation. The organizations will be offering sailing lessons and paddleboarding activities during the fall festival to fellow veterans, service members, and their families.
