Gyros for Heroes

In honor of Memorial Day, Vrakas held a firm lunch to raise money for the Stars & Stripes Honor Flight organization.

The mission of Stars and Stripes Honor Flight is to honor all veterans by flying WWII, Korean, and Vietnam war veterans, as well as terminally ill veterans from other conflicts, to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials.

In lieu of charging for lunch, a donation box was set out. At the end of the day we raised over $150 for the cause – Gyros for Heroes! Every little bit counts and we’re happy we could help support our veterans.

To date, Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, Inc. has flown over 4,500 veterans to see their memorials in Washington, D.C.
