OS91/UNO Event in Melbourne, FL

OS91 appreciates UNO Chicago Grill of Melbourne
Wonderful Event yesterday, 4/15/12, at UNO Chicago Grill of Melbourne, FL, prelaunching OS91's new campaign, "Catch The Cause" plus our week long Doughraiser at this location. And our heartfelt thanks to UNO Manager, Eddie Kerr and Marketing Director Susie Parente.

Jeff and Patti Warner singing National Anthem
Thank you to Jeff and Patti Warner for their beautiful rendition of the National Anthem to begin the Event, followed by Ed Ganster speaking about Responders and the risk they assume to protect, rescue and defend us. Ed then introduced our National Spokesperson, COL Danny McKnight, USA (Ret.) who graciously spoke for OS91 at this Event.

After the Event was over, COl McKnight pulled us over and said, "I have something to give you!...not as your National Spokesperson, but to Ed and Mary...from Danny and Linda." Then COL presented us with a print by Dr. Guy Harvey which we will proudly display in our home. COL Danny autographed it: "Ed & Mary - Thank you for all you do for our 1st Responders. Best always, with Love. Danny & Linda McKnight". 

But, dear COL McKnight, let us have the last word: We are truly honored and will be forever grateful to have you as our National Spokesperson. Thank you for representing us wherever you go and distributing Psalm 91 cards to our Responders all over the world. We love you and thank God for you!"

Our most sincere thanks to Brevard County Sheriff Jack Parker for providing two outstanding men and a wonderful K9, to Rockledge Police Chief Ron Krueger for honoring us with his presence and bringing his wife as well as providing a K-9 and Handler! To Brevard County Fire Rescue for sending Station 47 Firefighters, as well as all Responders who came on their day off and for all who came to support OS91! Thank you for all who joined in our prelaunch of "Catch The Cause" and who became members! Good food, good fellowship and a good cause! A good time was had by all!

This Event was the intro to a week long "Doughraiser" for Operation Safety 91. Present this voucher for dine-in, carry out, or commercial delivery this week 4/16 - 4/22 at the Melbourne UNO's, and UNO's will donate 20% of your check back to OS91 for Responders.
