Buckingham Advisors is once again sponsoring Operation Cherrybend, an annual event that provides combat-wounded veterans with fellowship and activities including adventure, music and community.
The mission of Operation Cherrybend is to thank veterans for their courage, selflessness and sacrifice to our country. This newly formed 501(c)(3) non-profit organization also hopes to educate the general public about the trials and challenges of wounded veterans, and veterans in general. The Veterans Administration says that as many as 20 American veterans commit suicide daily. Operation Cherrybend wants to see that number go down.
“Buckingham Advisors has been a sponsor of Operation Cherrybend for several years,” said Jay Buckingham, Chief Executive Officer of Buckingham Advisors. “Jessica DeBold, manager of our Wilmington office, is a founding member who also serves as Treasurer of the Board for Operation Cherrybend. We are passionate about supporting this organization that provides resources and events to thank wounded veterans for their courageous sacrifice to our country and brings together like-minded people to form a network that helps veterans who are struggling and expand their network of support through fellowship.”
“With May being Military Appreciation month and also being bookended with Memorial Day celebrations, we are hoping that interested citizens will be especially interested in helping us spread the word about Operation Cherrybend,” Buckingham said.
Two fundraisers will help make Operation Cherrybend a success:
- A Sporting Clays Fundraiser was held at Cherrybend on May 22, 2021
- The Heroes Golf Outing Fundraiser, Snow Hill Country Club, will be held June 19, 2021
Money from these fundraisers will provide the capital for:
- Operation Cherrybend’s Retreat Week, which will be held September 8 – 12, 2021
- A Heroes Concert on September 10, 2021
