Building Homes For Heroes® Events
4th Annual Skating for Heroes
Superior Ice Rink of Kings Park, NY will host the 4th annual Skating for Heroes event to commemorate Veterans Day on Tuesday, November 11, 2014. Proceeds from the event will benefit Building Homes for Heroes and USMC Lance Corporal Billy Ventura of Selden, Long Island. Lance Corporal Ventura, who was on leave from training at upstate Fort Drum, was involved in a motorcycle accident on Long Island. After the accident, a passing motorist ran Ventura over, and then fled the scene. Lance Corporal Ventura was treated for fractured vertebrae, crushed spinal cord, collapsed lung, and lacerated internal organs. He is paralyzed from the waist down.
Building Homes for Heroes will lead the effort to carry out a major renovation of the family's home to make it handicap-accessible in an effort to meet Lance Corporal Ventura's main needs, and to provide him with the freedom and independence he deserves.
The event will begin at 1:30 pm and end at 3:30 pm. Any donations are greatly appreciated.
