Proceeds from food will go to at-need veterans
VICTORIA, Texas — VFW post 4146 is hosting an open house on the Fourth of July, with all proceeds going to help the post as well as local veterans.
The open house begins at 1 pm and goes until 5 pm, and is located at the post’s headquarters at 2001 Lova Drive. Attendees can buy hamburger and hot dog plates for $5 each.
Junior Vice Commander Albert Maddox says he wants the community to know the open house — and all VFW events — are not only for veterans but for any area resident.
“We’ve got people that come in, play poker — they’re not even veterans, but we treat them like family,” said Maddox. “That’s our goal.”
Post 4146 also hosts a regularly scheduled Hamburger Night on Wednesday’s from 5-7 pm, with those proceeds going to area veterans as well.
