Madison Dryhootch Benefit is a fundraiser supporting local veterans.
Dryhootch Madison is a nonprofit coffeehouse dedicated to the physical and mental health of our veterans. There are 22 veteran suicides every day in our nation, and we have 28,000 veterans living in Dane County. Dryhootch works with community partners to help heal the emotional and physical trauma of service, and to reintegrate veterans into society. That means overcoming obstacles to employment, education, or housing. Some of the many issues that afflict our veterans include: alcoholism, depression, family breakups, joblessness, and homelessness.
Event Details: live music, dancing, food, kids activities, silent auction, raffle and more!
