The EGBAR Foundation is proud to support the Gary Sinise Foundation, helping further their mission to honor the nation's defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.
Their positive approach to inspiring change and bringing hope to communities is right in alignment with the EGBAR Foundation philosophy which is why we have chosen to support their Invincible Spirit Festivals. These festivals celebrate the heroic spirit displayed by wounded service members throughout their difficult rehabilitation. To show gratitude for their sacrifices as well as recognize the courage and commitment of their families and caregivers, daylong festivals are held on site at military medical hospitals.
Each daylong festival brings a fair-like atmosphere to one of our nation's military medical hospitals complete with a live Lt. Dan Band concert and a delicious cookout prepared by celebrity chefs. By providing a respite from the rigors of their medical treatment, these festivals offer a reminder of hope and positivity along the road to recovery.
The EGBAR Foundation kicked off support for the Gary Sinise Foundation in 2016, by awarding them a check for $100,000 to help support and expand their efforts. In addition to financial contributions, our EGBAR mascot and foundation volunteers are on hand to greet and serve families at the festivals.
As Mr. Sinise explains, "While we can never show enough gratitude to veterans, we can always do a little more."
We're proud to contribute to the Gary Sinise Foundation’s mission to create and support unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.
