Marker Nine

Support Patriot Boating Days, Support Military Families

It is with great honor that we, at Marker Nine, tell you about an incredible event coming up in our hometown of Gloucester, Virginia - at a location that's literally within view of the very Marker Nine that inspired us all.

York River Yacht Haven, a SunTex Marina location, will host their annual Patriot Boating Days on Sat., July 18 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Live music! Food! Military boat rides! Bounce house and clowns for kids!

The entire event is in honor of FOLDS OF HONOR and a fundraiser for their cause.

Proceeds from food and beverage sales (Budweiser beer truck, Chick-Fil-A, Subway, York River Oyster Company, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Scoot’s BBQ and Pelican SnoBalls of Gloucester) will support Folds of Honor, a non-profit organization that provides scholarship assistance to the children of military service members killed or disabled while on active duty.

"Of the million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance," according to Folds of Honor. "Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by helping support private education tuition, tutoring and educational summer camps, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and children."

Since 2007, Folds of Honor has awarded more than 7,500 scholarships, including more than 2,000 in 2014 alone.

York River Yacht Haven is located at 8109 Yacht Haven Road, Gloucester Point, Va.
