Veterans group hosts three-day fundraiser

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

A Wausau veterans group is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with a three-day fundraising event.

On Saturday, the Man of Honor Society held a flag raising ceremony as a part of Flag Day.

The group's president says in the past 10 years, the organization grew from a handful of members to more than 400 people.

He says event proceeds from this weekend's fundraiser will go toward helping veterans in Marathon County.

"Make sure our veterans who are having a little bit of bad luck or whatever the case may be that we're able to financially help them out," said Jeff Morgan, Man of Honor Society President.

The group is raising money from raffle tickets for a variety of prizes.

The event wraps up Sunday evening with a chicken dinner for Father's Day.
