The Old Dominion Boat Club (ODBC) will be hosting  an event to benefit the Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) Warrior Foundation on Sunday, November 6, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.   The event is co-sponsored by the ODBC and Squadron 34 Virginia Sons of the American Legion.  100% of all proceeds  directly support EOD veterans and their families.

The following information about the EOD Warrior foundation was taken from their website:

The EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF) serves the EOD community by providing financial assistance and support to active-duty and veteran wounded, injured or ill EOD warriors, families of our wounded and fallen EOD warriors and by maintaining the EOD Memorial.

The foundation offers four pillars of support and handles each request on a case-by case basis. The immediate and ongoing assistance and resources provided by the foundation to those in the EOD community are intended to provide support above and beyond the budgetary constraints of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

I.    Emergency Financial Relief
II.   Education
III.  Hope and Wellness
IV.  EOD Memorial Care

Our support includes financial assistance and additional services such as morale events, peer-to-peer support, educational programs, connections to resources and sustained contact with our EOD warriors and their families.

The foundation believes that the EOD family is for life. Our ongoing mission is to disarm the challenges of the EOD family by providing our support with compassion and caring to every individual we serve.

The EOD Warrior Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that was established through the March 1, 2013 merger of the EOD Memorial Foundation and the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation to streamline and increase our capacity to support the EOD community.
