Dear OYR Supporter,
I'm a bit shy to post this but I'm reaching out to everyone here:
As most of you know, my volunteer work for Operation Yellow Ribbon is very important to me. With Operation Yellow Ribbon, I try to show my support and gratitude to those that serve our country and to those that make sacrifices to help others across the globe. Our US Service Members and their families make so many sacrifices and for that and more, I am forever grateful. It is truly an honor to be recognized as what we do is not for recognition but it is indeed an honor when we are recognized.
Operation Yellow Ribbon has what I believe are the most amazing volunteers and just absolutely hands down the best supporters who are so generous in so many ways. This recognition is commentary on OYR volunteers and OYR supporters. It doesn't happen without any of the aforementioned amazing and giving people.
Due to our success over the years and thanks to all of our volunteers and supporters, Jersey Man and Philly Man magazine have nominated me for their “Man/Woman of the Year” award. This year there are six finalists and they will reveal the winner November 8th at their black tie affair. The event is hosted by comedian Joe Conklin!
I am reaching out to all of you for support. By sponsoring and buying tickets to this black tie affair, you will be asked which candidate you are supporting. The winner will receive a check for their cause and I would love to be able to generate more care package shipping money for Operation Yellow Ribbon.
The event is at Ballroom At the Ben over in Philadelphia and includes 4 hours of top-shelf open bar, food stations and butlered hors d'oeuvres, free parking and more.
Thank you for helping me support this cause. Please see the following link for more information including on how to select Operation Yellow Ribbon while purchasing tickets. Dscounted early bird tickets are available until using the promo code: earlybird
Again this honor doesn't happen without the amazing circle we all complete as friends, supporters and sponsors. It is truly an honor to be recognized and I'd be grateful to have some of my friends and OYR supporters in attendance to join us and celebrate this recognition. Thank you for this and so much more including your friendship and support; past, present and future
For the Troops,
-Dave Silver, President
