Since it was founded by Silknet in 2018, the Wounded Warrior Support Foundation has cared for Georgia’s wounded soldiers and veterans. The fund never stops seeking partners oversees, including companies and similar charitable funds. One of the latest initiatives in support of the Foundation took place in Florida, US, on 11 September, through a partnership with the US-based Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
The US company Silk Road Wines organized the Wine for Warriors Gala – a charity event in support of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The event kicked off the Department of Defense 2021 Warrior Games and also served as a homage to the 20th Anniversary of 9/11.
As a friend of the Wounded Warrior Support Foundation, Silk Road Wines agreed for the Co-founder of the WWSF, Paata Patiashvili, to introduce the WWSF’s work to the assembled guests, including the Governor of Florida, the US Defence Attaché Colonel Robert Argvliani, and other high-profile invitees. Also in attendance was Colonel Alexandre Tugushi, who was wounded during his service in Afghanistan.
Part of the funds raised by the charity event were donated to the WWSF and, in a gesture of goodwill, Silk Road Group companies Silk Hospitality, Tsinandali Wines and Silknet also donated in support of the charity gala. Honourable board member of the Wounded Warrior Support Foundation, Mr. David Shimp, and Ambassador of Georgia to the USA, David Bakradze, made speeches.
