BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - We all know the sacrifices our men and women in the military make but one Bakersfield group wants to focus on their families.
E&B Natural Resources is hosting the inaugural Red, White and Blue Gala and Golf Tournament Thursday May 1st and Friday May 2nd.
The money raised at the pair of events is going to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a national organization that helps families after their hero has made the ultimate sacrifice.
Thursday night's gala starts at 6:30 at the Crystal Palace located at 2800 Buck Owens Blvd.
TAPS President Bonnie Carroll and Navy SEAL, author and actor Rorke Denver will speak at the gala.
Friday's golf tournament at the Bakersfield Country Club starts at noon with registration at 10:30 a.m.
