party for patriots flag

Search Solution Group’s 2nd annual Party for Patriots created quite a buzz in the queen city this year. In partnership with the Charlotte Epicenter, Rooftop 210 – Alive After Five, and several professional sports teams, our firm was able to triple this year’s fundraising in support of Veterans Bridge Home – a 501-3c organization headquartered in Charlotte NC that supports local veterans and military families.

“We are amazed by the outpouring of support and generosity from the Charlotte community and even from some of the sports teams! We are so appreciative that the Panthers, Hornets, Hawks, and NASCAR supported the event and donated such great prizes. We are already planning Party For Patriots 2020 and I can’t wait to see what we will be raffling off next year!”

The Charlotte community came together for a second year to show their support for local veterans while enjoying the stunning views of Uptown Charlotte, live music by Departure: The Journey Tribute Band, drink specials, games, and of course the chance to win prizes totaling over $5,000 in value. Three days before the event we announced the grand prize for the raffle giveaway which included signed merchandise from NASCAR, Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Hornets, and the Atlanta Hawks.

Among the raffle tickets sold, five lucky winners were drawn to receive incredible prize packages comprised of donations from over 20 local businesses and organizations. Some of the prize packages included gift cards, swag, free tickets, free memberships, and signed memorabilia.

“Party for Patriots is a highlight of our summer calendar. Veterans Bridge Home serves local Veterans and military families, so it is great to receive such overwhelming support from local businesses like Search Solution Group, all of the local companies that donated items to the raffle, and individuals who supported the event with their generous donations.”

We were astonished by the outpouring of support from the community. Even the rain could not dampen the party’s mood as attendees continued buying tickets and enjoying the music under the shelter of a covered bar area. After a short time, the weather cleared, and the celebration continued into the evening. 

Veterans Bridge Home provides necessary and invaluable services to Charlotte-based veterans, including professional networking and employment services. As a local organization who cares deeply about enriching the lives of individuals through meaningful employment opportunities, our firm is proud to have been able to support Veterans Bridge Home in any capacity possible.
