City Barbeque raises $12.5K for veterans with brain injuries
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – City Barbeque was busy during the month of March, raising funds for veterans with traumatic brain injuries during National Brain Injury Awareness Month.
The money was raised from sales of a limited-edition drink tumbler, and will be donated to the Resurrecting Lives Foundation
Established in 2012, the Resurrecting Lives Foundation supports the estimated 20–25% of troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with traumatic brain injury, helping these veterans successfully transition to post-military lives and careers.
This is the third year City Barbeque has raised funds to support Resurrecting Lives; the company has donated $37,500 to date. In her recognition of last year’s contribution, Resurrecting Lives founder and executive director Dr. Chrisanne Gordon thanked City Barbeque “for engaging the entire community in this effort to support our military members, veterans, and their families affected by traumatic brain injury.”
