Shadow Graphix Is Excited to Support Wish for Our Heroes
At Shadow Graphix, we love helping out our clients and organizations throughout the area. One of the greatest things we can do is give back to the veterans who serve our country. That is why we’ve been a part of designing and installing many complimentary wraps and graphics in support of our veterans for many years.
This year we were approached with the honor of working with Prestige Family of Fine Cars, and 3M Commercial Solutions in support of WISH for OUR HEROES. We are excited to announce that we were able to design a custom military inspired wrap on a Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2. The unveiling of this awesome wrap will be showcased at WRAPSCON.
What is WRAPSCON?
This event, hosted at the Indianapolis Convention Center, showcases (all under the same roof) the most prominent vehicle wrap installers, leading manufacturers and distributors in the industry, in a 3 day event. Started by wrappers themselves, this is hosted by National Business Media (NBM). The group as a whole will share best practices and exchange many tips and ideas for all to share.
Where else will the Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2 be Displayed?
I’m so glad you asked! The vehicle will also be on display at two separate events in June. The first event is on June 11th at the Ramapo Concour on the Campus of Ramapo College. The next event is on June 12th at US Military Academy’s Thayer Hotel.
Additionally, the Lamborghini will then compete in a race as well. This race is called the Lamborghini Super Trofeo race and is in honor of the troops, which occurs on the weekend of June 29th – July 1st. This is right on time for the Fourth of July and what a better way to support our country.
What is WISH for OUR HEROES
WISH for OUR HEROES was started in November 2009 and is a national 501(c)(3), dedicated to assisting the men and women of the United States active-duty military. This organization is in honor of 1SG Thomas G. Wells, who was an active Marine. While a group of active duty militants were deployed, they realized when soldiers go back home there are certain issues that they and their family are faced when they return. WFOH wanted to start an organization that focused on these issues and ways that they can get help to many situations that arise.
Many of these small issues that military issues are faced with can cause larger issues down the road. Their goal is to decrease the number of divorces and suicides that can occur after a deployment and or from the military life in general. Military life can be very difficult on every person involved. Many of these soldiers are trained for war, but are not aware of how to adapt back to their “normal” life after they come home from being away from their home and families. Many are underpaid, return to a stack of bills and experience stress and uncertainty once they return to civilian life.
This is where WISH for OUR HEROES steps in to help. They want to provide resources to make their life just a little easier when they come home. WFOH grants wishes for these soldiers in a time of need. All they require is that they are an active-duty soldier when the wish is submitted. They do grant these wishes based upon emergencies first, but this is an excellent way for these soldiers to have some assistance to their needs. This could be anything from home repairs, clothing, bills to essentials for their family. To learn more about https://www.wishforourheroes.org.
