On Tuesday, January 10, 2012, the Veterans Task Force of Kentuckiana, a group that has actively supported Veterans and the Robley Rex VA Medical Center for the past five years, presented Medical Center Director, Wayne L. Pfeffer, with a check for $12,833.22. 

The donation is the result of months of work, devoted to a community-wide karaoke contest fund raiser to honor America’s Heroes.  Mr. Pfeffer stated “This very generous donation will help support annual events such as “Stand Down for Homeless Veterans” and “Welcome Home Events” honoring Veterans who have recently served in an active combat zone.  Additionally the donation will provide funding for such activities as the medical center’s “Comfort Cart”, activities for Veterans in the community struggling with chronic illnesses, and a special program that assists Veterans transitioning from homelessness into permanent housing.”

The Southern Indiana Task Force membership includes American Legion Post 28, American Legion Post 42, Elks Lodge 270, Knights of Columbus Cardinal Ritter 1221, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 1693, and VFW Post 3281.  This year, the event coordinator, Don Harshey, expanded the Task Force to include a group of Ivy Tech Criminal Justice students.

Plans are already underway to hold another karaoke contest in the fall of 2012.  To learn more about the Task Force and how you can support their efforts, you can contact Don Harshey, 502-609-3863.
