Wounded Warrior Benefit Auction
World War Brick has been dedicated to supporting our Veterans since the first one was held in Chicago in 2012. Many activities such as the raffle and auction are specifically designed with fund-raising in mind, with all proceeds being donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. At World War Brick 2015 we raised over $10,000 and plan to far exceed that figure in 2016! Looking to get a jump on donating. We make all our Wounded Warrior Project donations through Our Wounded Warrior World War Brick Team Page. This exclusive event allows weekend passholders to give back to the Veterans in our communities who have given so much for us. Weekend passholders also receive the opportunities to bid on rare, one of a kind and out of production BrickArms, Brickmania Kits and collectibles. – Weekend Passholder Event
