Owners of Forever Yours Jewelry Raise $13,000 for Badger Honor Flight (Forever Yours Jewelry)

Laurie and John Krueger, owners of Forever Yours Jewelry and Collector's Choice Coins and Collectibles in Downtown Sun Prairie, helped raise $13,000 in the Wausau area for wounded vets and and the Badger Honor Flight program. They worked with the Ringle VFW to put together a banquet and had a silent and live auction of wood carvings by John's dad, Harvey. It was a huge success and the funds will be used to take three wounded vets on a fishing charter on Lake Michigan, and about 20 Veterans will be able to go on the Honor Flight to Washington D.C.

Stop in to their shop in Downtown Sun Prairie and thank Laurie and John for their efforts!

Blogger's Note: Sun Prairie Star editor Chris Mertes has also been doing a lot of work with Badger Honor Flight. Check out some of his efforts on Facebook and in the Star.
