Dunk Tank
The dunk tank is a great way to have fun and have participation by the public. Have some well known subject sit in the tank and just watch the fun….great way to raise funds at events.  The tank is available for use by contacting us and getting on the schedule and making a donation to our operation of supporting veterans. All funds raised go toward helping veterans in  need, whether it be for gas money to get home, home problems, pet problems or any number of other things that go wrong in life. The charge for use of the Dunk Tank is $25 per hour, with a maximum of $125 for the day. Send a email to dunk.tank@vva975.org include date needed and contact person. We are there for veterans!!
