Clarence Citizens for Veteran is hosting its second annual Open Your Heart event to benefit our youngest heroes, military children.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit “WNY Kids are Heroes Too.” This year’s event is from 6 to 10 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Clarence Main Street Park Clubhouse.

Last year, many generous donors and more tan 350 guests helped Clarence Citizens for Veterans raise money for local veterans.

In addition to wine, cheese and chocolate, items available for purhcase include beer, soda, water, Pittsburgh salad, pulled pork, barbecue beef brisket, pizza and dessert items.

The event features a Chinese and silent auction, trivia contest and more. Silent auction items include Bon Jovi tickets, locally handcrafter hickory wine rack, reverse osmosis water filtration system, signed hockey stick by Buffalo Sabres Thomas Vanek, James Deitz signed and numbered militry edition print of “The Wedding Reception”, Leroy Nieman prints “Secretariat” and “Alabama Hand Off”, Neil Boyle print “Henry Aaron”, signed military relics and more. CCV will als be selling military appreciation banners for display in the town.

This event is for adults ages 21 and older.

CCV works to raise money for both national and local entities. Organizations like the Wounded Warrior Project, Honor Flight Buffalo, WNY Heroes and the SSgt. Mark A. Spence Memorial Scholarship Fund have all been beneficiaries for our fund-raising efforts.

Most recently, we were able to utilize both our funds and manpower in assisting the Homes for out Troops, Cpl Paul Schaus project.

Ultimately, we work to provide assistance wherever it is needed, especially in situations where benefits fall short and can’t fulfill the needs of heroes and their families.

Admission is $10 and includes starter tickets for food, beverage and entrance into a door prize raffle. Additional tickets are available for purchase at the event.
