A portion of your ticket price will benefit the official event charity, Long Island-based Project 9 Line.
Project 9 Line is about reaching veterans and assisting them with the transition to civilian life. The group’s primary goals are Outreach, Communication, and Purpose with a mission is to empower veterans with reintegration through the arts and activities.
There is not enough done to help our Veterans. Statistics show that twenty two Veterans decide to take their own life every day. At Project9line, their goal is to make an impact on this alarming fact. Many of our Veterans return home from performing the ultimate duty of serving our country only to face hardship, depression, and substance abuse. Project9line encourages all Veterans to be the best they can be. Through their extensive resources and hands on team, they help maximize the potential of each and every Veteran. Project9line strives to help Veterans create, reach, and surpass goals in order to form their own American Dream.
The name Project9line is derived from a very important U.S. Military protocol known as “9 line MEDVAC”. It is a procedure that has saved the lives of countless soldiers on the battlefield. The 9 Line MEDVAC guides calls for help when there is a casualty on the battlefield. When placing a call, a soldier on the field must provide the 9 most important facts about the scenario so the most effective help can be sent. The process is uniform across all branches of service to ensure ease of communication. For many Veterans, a war within begins as soon as they arrive home. Many veterans need a 9 Line on the home front as well.
