Dr Biden and survivor family members watch race #.

On Sunday November 2nd Dave Greelish from On The Mark Promotions, as a member of the White House Advance Associate program assisted in planning an event for Vice President’s wife Dr Jill Biden at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY. The event included about 750 family members from surrounding states of soldiers lost in wars. The event was held in Millionaire’s Row on the fourth floor of Churchill Downs. It included a speaking program with General Tonini, General Grass and Dr Biden, an enormous buffet, games for kids and of course several horse races including 1 race dedicated to the Survivors. Dr Biden is a huge advocate for military families and takes part in many events each year. She and the First Lady Michelle Obama are a driving force behind the “Joining Forces” program http://www.whitehouse.gov/joiningforces a program which is dedicated to helping service men and women find jobs when they return home. The event was a huge success and it was a beautiful day at the Downs!
