“This event can bring hundreds of military supporters to Delano for a great night of music and appreciation for what those in the military mean to all of us,” says Den Gardner, chair of the event. “GreenCare for Troops helps make green spaces better for our military families’ and ties directly to the mission of Project EverGreen: Bringing people together to make a difference in how our yards, parks and communities create a greener, healthier, cooler earth.”

Project EverGreen is a national non-profit organization committed to improving yards, parks and communities. Since 2006, the GreenCare for Troops program has provided complimentary lawn and landscape services for families of currently deployed military personnel and post 9/11 disabled veterans with service-connected disability. The program has paired thousands of volunteer landscape contractors with military families across the nation.

Raffle prizes include a Toro 22” Personal Pace® PoweReverse™ walk-behind lawn mower, 22” Personal Pace® all-wheel drive walk-behind lawn mower, 13” PowerPlex™ cordless string trimmer/edger with 40V lithium ion battery and a 24” PowerPlex hedge trimmer bare tool with 40V lithium ion battery.
