A Play Day for Wounded Warriors will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Armed Forces Day, to benefit the nationally recognized Wounded Warrior Project. The event is being hosted by the County Fair Mall in Woodland.

The Wounded Warrior Project’s mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors and its vision is to foster the most successful and well-adjusted generation of wounded warriors in our nation’s history. The project’s purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

A Play Day for Wounded Warriors is intended to be a relaxing, playful, informational experience for adults and children. Jeff Fabry, a gold medal winner in the 2012 Paralympic Games, will perform an archery demonstration and Supervisor Matt Rexroad of Woodland will speak.

Jewelry donated by A King’s Ransom will be raffled off, and all of the proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. Kids can work off some energy in a bounce house; watch Music Town perform using pots, pans and various household items; then enjoy a smoothie from Jamba Juice, which will donate 20 percent of its sales to Wounded Warriors.

Yolo Military Families will have a booth with educational information and opportunities to send care packages to the troops and Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market will raffle off gift cards and donate proceeds to Wounded Warriors.

“We are receiving lots of interest from area VFW posts that intend on participating in various ways, including a motorcycle ride while wearing their colors by the VFW Riders Association, and a display of

A 1968 Kaiser Jeep M35a2 owned by James Jurkiewicz will be on exhibit.
