Team Members were given the opportunity to donate $5 and receive a R.E.D. T-shirt to wear at work during the “Casual for a Cause” Friday. At the conclusion of the fundraiser, Aquarius Team Members presented a $4,315 check to board members of the Tri-State Military Moms, Inc. representing 100% of the proceeds raised.

They also organize coming home celebrations for our returning service members.
“The Tri-State Military Moms consider the Aquarius Team members as taking hospitality to another level…Ambassadors of their organization, with a passion for giving, far beyond their work assignments.
They may never know the military service member who receives a package from home due to their generosity and support, or that family who has a sponsored banner on our “Heroes Highway”, but we have seen and heard the impact from so many of our military and their families who are the recipients of their generosity. We are so humbled and grateful to Sean Hammond, his team, and all the people who contribute to the ongoing promotion of wearing R.E.D each Friday!” said Cindy Frizelle, President Tri-State Military Moms, Inc.
