FORGOTTEN SOLDIERS SALUTE OUR TROOPS!
Come join us at The 2013 Blue Martini-Annual Salute to Our Troops Event! Red, White and Blue, Salute to Our Troops at Blue Martini Boca Raton is a benefit for The Forgotten Soldiers Outreach. It is an opportunity to raise our glasses and funds for our troops. We are proud to announce our special guest’s singer NBC’s THE VOICE Michaela Paige and a proclamation from the office of Congresswoman Lois Frankel. Funds raised will go directly to send “we care” packages to our troops. It is a way to make sure they know they have the basic necessities of everyday life.
The event will be at 7:00pm- on Friday, May 24, 2013, at 6000 Glades Rd in Boca Raton. (It is outside the shopping center of Town Center Mall).
This year we will be paying special tribute to women in military. For years women have been serving in all the branches of the military but in January of 2013, the Pentagon lifted the restrictions for women in combat. Now women will be recognized officially for their sacrifice. We salute all our brave men and women serving overseas.
“I am so proud to be a part of this amazing organization whose direct service has benefitted our troops when they are away from home. The organization is really groups of amazing people whose hearts are dedicated to their mission of helping families and our soldiers” Tara Laxer, chair of Salute Our Troops Event 2013.
“We are grateful to all the supporters who understand that our troops give their blood, sweat and tears to protect us. FSO simply tries to give them a piece of home during their deployment so they know we are with them even if we are a million miles away”- Lynelle Chauncey Zelner, Executive Director of Forgotten Soldiers Outreach Inc.

The proceeds will be donated to Forgotten Soldiers Outreach Inc. to help the mission of sending monthly “we care” packages to all of our brave young men and women who are currently serving overseas. For a decade, FSO has been committed to our US servicemen and women by sending “a little bit of home” to assure them they are not forgotten. We send non-perishable items and letters of support directly from our National Operation Center located in the city of Lake Worth. There is a $10 fee at the door.
Since 2003, FSO has delivered over 100,000 “we care” packages filled with the essentials they miss from the states while they are serving, benefiting over 250,000 of our military personnel, to date. We also ensure that they receive thousands of letters of support from schools and non-profits in the community.
It is important that we stay true to our mission and to our soldiers. To learn more about FSO, please go to www.forgottensoldiers.org.
