Fundraising Event for Operation Homefront
Stahls Automotive Museum hosts 2nd Annual Veterans Day Open House
Last year we opened the doors at the Stahls Automotive Museum on Veterans Day to honor veterans and current service members. We had outstanding attendance and were also able to raise $22,000 for the Wounded Warrior organization. This year, we are opening the museum once again on Veterans Day and will be fundraising to support the local Michigan chapter of Operation Homefront. If you are able to make it on Wednesday Nov. 11, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m, please stop by. The museum is located at 56516 North Bay Drive in Chesterfield, Michigan. I had the opportunity to speak with our local ABC news channel about the event on Sunday, here is the video report (you may have to view a short commercial):
We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to honor the men and women that have given so much for our country. Both my father and brother are veterans, and we have many more family members who have served or are still serving today. Our way of life would not be possible without them, and we are proud to show our support, along with the Detroit Arsenal of Democracy, which has loaned an array of wartime memorabilia and military vehicles for display throughout the museum.
The museum’s unique collection of mechanical music players will also be on display during Veterans Day. Guests will enjoy the bells and whistles of the 1924 Wurlitzer Pipe Organ — originally built and installed in Rudolph Wurlitzer’s family mansion — played live by museum curator John Lautner throughout the event.
Once again, the Veterans Day Open House is free and open to all ages. Donations are encouraged. All donations made at the event will be matched by the Stahl family and will directly benefit the local chapter of Operation Homefront in their efforts to support military families.
