A violent rainstorm disrupted a fundraising event sponsored by the Veterans of South Pinellas County in Horan Park in St. Pete Beach on Saturday, March 19.
Harry Metz, president of the Veterans of South Pinellas County, said the threat of bad weather dampened turnout and fundraising possibilities even before the rain forced organizers to suspend the 6th Annual Salute to the Military in the early afternoon.
“We tried,” he said.
The fundraiser included a car show, food, vendors and live music. This year’s benefactors were Building Homes for Heroes, Support the Troops and Heaven on Earth. For more information, call 727-322-5217.
