The event features a hog roast, craft fair and raffle to raise money for the Dayton VA Medical Center PTSD Clinic.

Event proceeds will help with in-patient treatment. While a veteran is in the program, he or she is unable to leave the VA grounds or go to work, which is financially difficult for them and their families, according to the VFW.
