Local tavern holding weekend long jam to support veterans

CHAMPION — A local bar is having a huge event this weekend to raise money for disabled veterans.

The Junction 95 tavern located off of U-S 41 near Champion is having its second annual Junction 95 Jam. At this event, vendors and bands from the area come together to show their support for our veterans. All the proceeds from this jam will go to the organization, Courage Incorporated along with the Champion Lion’s Club.

Courage Incorporated is a new organization that focuses on taking disabled individuals camping, free of charge.

“It’s a new company we just started called courage incorporated, we take out disabled vets, vets in need, disabled kids and people canoeing and backpacking and stuff like that. We rely pretty much on donations, we just started,” said Courage Incorporated, Nathan Denofre.

During this event, anyone from the community is invited to stop by and participate in the great variety of activities offered.

“Today for this event, it’s ten dollars a day or 15 dollars for both days, camping is free. Then we do have fair food, brats, hot dogs, corn on the cob,” said Junction 95 Owner, Sanford Pesola.

This event is kicking off tonight and will be going until Saturday night. The owners of Junction 95 are happy to help out local charities in need.
