Valued Longtime Partner

2015 Snow Ball Benefit

 In Memory Supporter Ken Armstrong

Garners $8,500 For FOFH-IL Mission

to Sustain Hines VA Fisher House

Take an evening of live rock music, by headliners: Miles Nielsen(son of the legendary Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen) & The Rusted Hearts plus Urban Squirrel and East End Drive. Combine these with endless free pizzas courtesy of Edison Park Inn plus a Cash Bar. The result?

A funfilled event where attendees voluntarily and generously donate to the FOFH-IL humanitarian support cause as their cover charge.

The Snow Ball Benefit has been a major fundraiser for FOFH-IL every December for about six years. All of the hard work is performed by organizer George Mutert and his family plus Kim Ericksen, band coordinator. Our non-profit is grateful to them for their months of planning and execution of this terrific and well-attended event,” states Betty Stamatis, FOFH-IL President.

Special thanks for tireless FOFH-IL Board volunteers who manned the FOFH-IL booth all night long accepting donations and distributing Federal Tax ID receipts of thanks: Mary Vaughan, Bernard Coffey and Eddie Jackson.

Military Families Express Heartfelt Appreciation

Fisher House is a Godsend. So many of us want to be with our family members but can’t always afford it with the cost of travel, lodging and food. Thanks to Fisher House we can!


What a blessing! The Fisher House has relieved me of so much stress. Don’t know what I would have done.


This is such a great opportunity for families of veterans affected by war and illness. It warms my heart to see the government, community, families and those who serve out nation working together for the greater good.


The place is more than just a place to sleep. It’s just like your second home.


My grandmother and I stayed at the Fisher House to keep my father company during his long treatment/recovery… If not for this home, my father would have been a sad and lonely man.


…The Fisher House provides peace of mind for the patient as well as their family…the manager and staff are a true blessing…
