VETERAN TOUR SPONSORS
For more than 20 years, the B.P.O.E. has been on the front line of Re-Creation’s service to hospitalized veterans. The Elks National Veterans Service Commission works with local Elks Lodges in VA tour cities to provide housing for Re-Creation cast members. All Elks representatives are invited to the show and are specially recognized during the program. Extra PR material to advertise the program in local lodges is available through our office. www.elks.org
The Elks do so much to engage and honor our veterans, and we appreciate their continued support!

The Bowlers to Veterans Link:
Still There for our Troops
Sixty years ago, America’s league bowlers answered the call of a nation heading into war. Critical supplies were needed overseas — U.S. forces wounded on the battlefields of Europe were not getting the medical care they needed. The Bowlers Victory Legion was borne to raise money to purchase medical evacuation planes and to support America’s troops.
Now the BVL helps provide recreational materials to VA Medical Centers and State Homes across America! The BVL also helps contribute to Re-Creation VA tour costs. In fact, The BVL is Re-Creation’s longest-running sponsor, partnering with us for more than 30 years in service to our nation’s veterans!

The Florida Elks and their Army of Hope also provide for the production and distribution of Re-Creation CD’s and DVD’s to every VA facility the group visits! This substantial gift is vital in extending the Re-Creation presence to the men and women in the hospitals and homes. Patients will listen to the show again on headphones during rehab sessions, and they’ll watch the show again, on personal or large-room televisions, reliving the special day when America came to their bedside to say THANK YOU! All of this tangible presence is courtesy of the FSEA and their Army of Hope! Thank you Florida Elks!
In the past 4 years, the association has provided specific and vital support by providing Re-Creation with new road equipment, including a new passenger van, a new trailer and a grant for new sound equipment.
The FSEA also houses the cast members at their youth camp in central Florida. The hospitality provided at the camp is crucial to group’s ability to perform in commercial venues around FL during January and February. The Florida Elks set the standard in enthusiastic dedication to our recovering veterans! Thank You Florida Elks!
