Raising Awareness For Charities

The Gettysburg Battlefield Bash helps raise awareness for charities that are important to us. Below are the charities we will be helping raise awareness for this year.

Helen Sajer, President

The late Major General Gerald Sajer and his wife, Helen, founded Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors Inc. in 2006 to support and assist Wounded Warriors and their families as the soldiers returned from deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. They started out by visiting wounded soldiers and their families in Washington D.C., then invited them for a relaxing weekend at their farm in Adams County. As the word spread, PAWW began to work with the Lebanon VA Hospital to address other veteran needs. Ten years later PAWW has grown tremendously thanks to the generous support of Pennsylvanians and in our statewide capability to assist Wounded Warriors, Veterans in Crisis and their families. We are independent non-profit 501©3 organization and not affiliated with any other veterans support organization, nor do we receive any funds from them.

Heroes 4 Higher

John and Ronda Buckland

Heroes 4 Higher Foundation was started in 2012 and focuses on 4 main principles to make the world a better place. They provide last wish Batmobile rides for terminally ill children, visit sick children in the hospitals, provide talks for at risk children in detention centers, provide outreach to communities in times of disaster, and much more.

Special Guests

The Gettysburg Battlefield Bash has always featured many great special guests over the years and 2020 is no different. We are pleased to announce the following guests will be at this years event.

Keeping You Safe

With all of the concerns about Covid-19 this year it goes without saying that the safety of our guests and vendors is top priority. Because of this we are implementing a few changes this year to keep you safe as per CDC guidelines. These include:

Frequent hand washing is always encouraged, but we will also be offering multiple hand sanitizing stations throughout the areas of the Bash.

We will be limiting the number of attendees allowed in the vendor area at any given time in order to practice proper social distancing.

We are encouraging all attendees to use social distancing practices when at the event. It’s recommended to stay 6 feet away from others in order to help prevent the spread of Covid 19.

Unfortunately we had to ultimately make the decision to cancel all lectures and bands this year to aid in proper social distancing protocols. Don’t worry though, we are already planning to have them return in 2021.

In accordance with Governors orders we are suggesting that face coverings be worn. If we see you without a face covering we will politely assume you are unable to wear one and you will still be permitted at the event.
