The Rose & Womble Foundation’s Annual Bowl-a-Thon for our Military is fast approaching. On September 21st we hope to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project and Gold Star Moms.
The Wounded Warrior Project is a veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001
