George Mutert and friends organize this funfilled event with live music, endless pizzas where friends, relatives of Armstrong – early supporter of the fund-raising campaign to construct Hines VA Fisher House—gather to reminisce.

"FOFH-IL is delighted and honored by our continuing relationship with George Mutert, his family and the East End Drive band, Urban Squirrel plus Glenn Davis and the Blues Commission who devote so much time and energy to this homage to our friend and supporter Ken Armstrong."

"We count Ken Armstrong as foremost on our list of the construction fundraising phase supporters. He with his partner Kim Ericson gave sizeable monetary contributions to the cause. We will always be grateful for their generosity." Check In Memoriam Kenneth Russell Armstrong.

"We welcome and are grateful for fundraising efforts like the Snow Ball benefit. These funds go directly to help pay for operations, maintenance, groceries, supplies so families can stay completely free of charge at Hines VA Fisher House."

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.

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…
