Pets for Vets at Even Flow

0


Paul McEvoy (1982- 2014) served in the US Army’s 172nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team “Thunder Platoon.” He was one of the boys that kicked in doors looking for insurgents, protecting everyone else from snipers and what not. Paul passed from a heart virus last November, 2014.

Danny Wiseman and the staff of Even Flow Bar and Grill held a benefit for our fallen hero. The Paul McEvoy Wings for Warriors benefit was held June 27th and 28th.

Call tech support. It won’t fit

The event started with a motorcycle run from Bay Shore to Oak Beach and back. After the run ended, there were 2 fabulous nights of music.

Even Flow Bar and Grill raised $5,000 that was donated to Pets For Vets. This $5,000 will help provide past veterans with service dogs.

Heidi Holstad runs the local chapter of Pets for Vets. Pets For Vets is a national organization with 32 chapters across country. They help heal emotional wounds of war by leading a voice to those in need, selecting and training pets. Studies have shown waking dogs help can help be social, at home it can help from not being hyper vigilant. Pets For Vets look for dogs from shelters and rescues animals from 2 to 5 years old. Pets for vets is open to all past veterans.
