Help Support Families of Fallen Troops at Bowl-aThon

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

American Gold Star Moms has a personal connection to Rose & Womble. The organization is a bereavement group for mothers of fallen troops.  Two of our very own, Mona Gunn, Resale Agent from Holland Road and Darlene Kelly from Property Management are members of Gold Star Moms because their children made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Mona’s son, Seaman Cherone L. Gunn was killed in the USS Cole bombing and she is featured in this video:

Darlene’s son, Army Sgt. Shawn Dunkin, was killed in 2007 by an IED attack in Iraq.  This is what Gold Star Mom’s means to Darlene:

“The Gold Star Moms have been an excellent support group for me.  These moms have also lost children while serving in the military and understand the pain I am going through because they are also going through it.  This pain never goes away.  We have come together as a group serving our military and veteran groups.  “All gave some – Some gave all” has a much deeper meaning to Gold Star Moms and Gold Star Families,” said Darlene.  “Please support the Rose and Womble Foundation and their Bowl-A-Thon so the good work can continue.”
Please consider organizing a team or supporting a team in sponsorship.  Last year several people brought teams from outside Rose & Womble making the day a huge success.   All proceeds from this event goes to these worthwhile charities.
