Trinity Oaks will host the “Back the Brave” fundraiser

Join Trinity Oak on October 21, 2022 at the River Ranch Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas for their “Back the Brave” fundraiser. This fundraiser is in support of the Trinity Oaks Star Kids program, a special program for the sons and daughters of fallen first responders and veterans. The purpose of the Star Kids program is to help these sons and daughters as well as honor their families’ sacrifices with unique outdoor experiences to help them cope with their loss. Each boy is paired with a member of the fallen first responder agency or military branch as a hunting buddy and mentor. The pair become hunting certified and hunt together and become lifelong friends.

The “Back to the Brave” fundraiser promises to be an incredible night of camaraderie, fabulous food, music, live auctions, games, raffles, live entertainment with an open bar. The event will feature Lt. Richard Jankovsky of the Texas DPS as a guest speaker. He will share his personal connection to Trinity Oaks, the Star Kids mentoring program, and how he has seen the healing effects of outdoor activities.
