The EGBAR Foundation is proud to support the Gary Sinise Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to honor American defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.
Their positive approach to inspiring change and bringing hope to communities is right in alignment with the EGBAR Foundation philosophy.
We began our support in 2016 by participating in their Invincible Spirit Festivals. The festivals are designed to celebrate the heroic spirit displayed by wounded service members throughout their difficult rehabilitation. To show gratitude for their sacrifices, and the courage of their families and caregivers, daylong festivals are held on site at military medical hospitals.
Each festival brings a fair-like atmosphere to the hospital and is complete with a live Lt. Dan Band concert and a delicious cookout prepared by Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine. 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.
In addition to financial contributions, our EGBAR mascot and foundation volunteers were on hand to greet families and serve families throughout the day. We look forward to growing our relationship with the Gary Sinise Foundation in the coming years.
