2022 Fundraising Events

An All-American Evening…Dayton – History Made Here

376 tickets were sold for this successful event that included fun, food, auctions, and entertainment at the Dayton Arcade. Attendees participated in a silent auction of art, jewelry, event tickets, sporting items and much more. Dan Edwards served as the Master of Ceremonies for the evening and a gourmet meal was catered by Elite Catering. There was also a Heads-or-game plus wine and spirits tastings. Professional auctioneer Doug Sorrell conducted the live auction.  This year’s event raised a record-breaking $141,845.14 (after expenses) for the benefit of the Wright-Patterson and Dayton VA Medical Center Fisher Houses (and has raised $1,512,392.47 after expenses since it started in September 2004). Publicity took place on Dayton Access TV (DATV), WDTN’s “Five on 2” and ABC22/Fox45 “Good Day Dayton.”

Popcorn Operation

In July 2004, the Fisher/Nightingale Houses, Inc., assumed responsibility for the popcorn operation conducted at the Wright-Patt Medical Center and continued support until mid-March 2020, when it was suspended due to the COVID pandemic.
