Tackitt Family Vineyards announced this week that they raised $21,017 for the EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF) during their fourth annual Warriors Helping Warriors event at their winery earlier this month.

The funds raised will be used to provide financial assistance and support to active-duty and veteran wounded, injured EOD warriors, families of our wounded and fallen EOD warriors and by maintaining the EOD Memorial.
