American Muscle helps Homes For Our Troops

American Muscle donates $4230.36 to charity benefiting our troops at annual picnic

We just received word that on Saturday, July 12th, our friends at American Muscle held their annual company picnic and charity fund raiser. Once again, this year’s charity foundation was Homes For Our Troops which is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping those with serious disabilities and injuries.

This organization is committed to assisting those who have returned from their service to our country severely injured, and their immediate families, by raising donations of money, building materials, and professional labor to build a new home or adapt an existing home for handicapped accessibility.

Here’s their breakdown of funds raised and how:

  • Mustang Parts Sales Donation (5% Sales During The Event) – $3615.36
  • Additional Company Donation – $500.00
  • Phone Donations – $ 115.00
  • Grand Total – $ 4230.36

In addition to their annual charity fundraiser, this event was also their annual company picnic. In their words, the picnic was “…a variety of fun activities, massive food consumption of previously unthinkable proportions, and shenanigans pursued including “American Gladiator” style jousting, expert mechanical bull riding, dunk tank dunking of boss, horseshoeing, a limbo contest ‘How low can you go?’, and of course the creme de la creme of picnic activities… the office employee versus the warehouse employee TUG OF WAR!” Sounds like they had a great time.

You can check out their pictures of the American Muscle crew cutting loose on their blog. They ask that you keep an eye out for next year’s fundraiser picnic to help make it a bigger success!

Here at Ridestory, we’d like to extend a big “thank you” to American Muscle for their charitable efforts. The wounded soldiers you’ve helped out will no doubt appreciate it.
