Morristown, NJ — The NJ Fallen Soldiers Foundation is hosting an evening of fun, games, and excitement at their eighth annual fundraiser. This year the foundation will hold a Casino Night at Spring Brook Country Club in Morristown.
The doors will open at 7 pm for a fun filled evening of games of chance, luscious food entertainment, and a cash bar.

“Our Casino Night event is a major fundraiser to help fund many of our programs, including the 2nd Annual Morristown Stand Down this November 8th and 9th. This year’s Stand Down will offer assistance to hundreds of homeless vets and will provide many of the services needed by the homeless veteran participants including medical, dental, social services, housing, employment, PTSD/TBI counseling, legal assistance and much more. We provide survival gear, clothing, outer wear and a hot meal to our unfortunate brothers and sisters,” said Tom Dresdner, president and founder of the NJ Fallen Soldiers Foundation.
“The men and women who sacrificed their career and family plans to serve this nation in its time of need deserve every bit of help we can offer when they find themselves in a time of need. We have an obligation to link our homeless and impoverished veterans to every service and assistance possible to get them on their feet again and back to being productive members of our society,” said Commissioner Harold J. Wirths of the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development.”
