The Craft Bar hosted an extremely successful fundraising event Tuesday, March 24, 2015, raising$9,013.47 for Special Forces Association, Chapter 7, a local 501(c)19 not-for-profit veterans organization that provides assistance to the soldiers and families of the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) located at Duke, Field. The total includes one hundred percent of all restaurant revenue and additional donations made to the organization during the event.
The event was planned to honor the memory of Chris Kyle, former Navy Seal & author of, American Sniper. Inspired by Kyle, Chan Cox, The Craft Bar owner and local restaurateur, looked for a way to contribute to Kyle’s legacy. “I was moved,” says Cox. “I wanted to give something back to the men and women that experience life-changing circumstances while defending our freedom.”
