Family Holiday Party, Bowling and Santa
Operation TBI Freedom, River Deep and SCI HOP hosted the third annual Family Holiday Party for wounded vets and family members at the Bass Pro Shop in Colorado Springs. The Bass Pro Shop and Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill have a beautiful bowling alley that feels like an aquarium with all the fish mounts hanging from the ceiling along with the tackle and boats. Santa sat next to the Christmas tree, fireplace and decorations as he passed out presents to 50 children, along with over 100 adults in attendance. Some are bowling and some are bringing their kids over to meet Santa, receive a gift and have their picture taken.
Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill, connected to the bowling alley, served lunch at noon which left everyone with a smile on their face. It was a fantastic family holiday party. Thanks to Operation TBI Freedom and their staff, along with Bass Pro Shop, Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill, Fort Carson Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB), River Deep, SCI HOP and all the volunteers that made this possible.
