    14TH HOUR FOUNDATION FUNDRAISER - PRIVATE EVENT

    14thHourLogoFinal.png

    PRIVATE FUNDRAISER TO BENEFIT 14th HOUR FOUNDATION

    The 14th Hour Foundation was founded by Kris Paronto or “Tanto” as he is affectionately known in security contracting circles. Tanto is a former Army Ranger from 2nd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment and private security contractor who has deployed throughout South America, Central America, the Middle East and North Africa. He also worked with the US Government’s Global Response Staff conducting low profile security in high threat environments throughout the world.

    Tanto was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack on the US Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya, September 11th, 2012, helping to save over 20 lives while fighting off terrorists from the CIA Annex for over 13 hours. Mr. Paronto’s story is told in the book “13 Hours” written by Mitchell Zuckoff and his five surviving annex security team members. Tanto knows firsthand that the greatest needs of our fine heroes often occur in the months and years following their mission or fight – in their “14th Hour”.

    The 14th Hour Foundation is committed to raising and dispersing funds to help the lives and futures of Veterans, Military Contractor Personnel and First Responders that have served and sacrificed to protect the American Homeland. Proceeds from this charitable fund provide assistance in the form of a Honor Grants for those unexpected everyday life events that other government programs may not cover. These may include, utility bills, help with rent, a vehicle repair, burial costs and help with college tuition. Additionally, the 14th Hour Foundation partners with other veteran organizations to increase awareness of veteran-related issues and to provide for veteran support services.

    Administrative overheads are kept very low so more donation dollars go to those needing assistance.
