Armstrong & Getty Raise $385,000 For Wounded Vets

11-21-2011

The final tally is in and it's impressive. The Veterans Day show Armstrong & Getty hosted was the culmination of an 11-day “Drive for Our Wounded Vets” that raised nearly $385,000 for Fisher House, a non-profit organization that supports wounded veterans and their families. Listeners of the show donated $384,910 by the end on the drive. The final total nearly quadruples the original goal of $100,000.

“We're amazed and inspired by our audience's generosity. They dug deep to support our warriors, vets and their families,” said show co-host Joe Getty. “The headlines are full of bad people and bad acts but this drive really reminded us of how much good there still is in Northern California and across the United States.”

The Veterans Day show included interviews with Ken Fisher, Chairman and CEO of Fisher House and Col. Brian Hayes, Commander of the David Grant USAF Medical Center at Travis AFB, as well as wounded veterans and their families who have stayed at Fisher House.

The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. There is at least one Fisher House at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment.
