The Chapter 2 Books in Cashiers will host a Memorial Day fund-raising event to benefit the Special Operations Adventure Race and Special Operations Warrior Foundation from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 28.
Everybody is invited to stop and chat with local retired members of the U.S. Armed Forces and browse through military books brought in for the event. The special guests will tell stories and answer questions. The local VFW will also be there to hand out memorial poppies for their fund-raiser.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides full scholarship grants, counseling and immediate financial assistance to the surviving children of special operations personnel who die in missions. SOAR and SOWF will receive 20 percent of the profit from book sales at the event.
