Bar & Restaurant Pub Crawl recruiter

Every year to celebrate Marine LCpl Jared Schmitz's 21st birthday we hold our annual nationwide Pub Crawl. We need boots on the ground in all states willing to help call on and drop in on bars and restaurants to recruit them to want to participate. The more bars and restaurants in close proximity to each other the better. This has made national headlines and has gotten main stream media attention. This is one of our largest annual fundraisers.

It is FREE for bars and restaurants to participate. The Freedom 13 will provide them with pub crawl marketing kits making it essentially turnkey. All we need is their permission to participate and for them to spread the word to their patrons. This is a very simple way for them to make a difference in a veteran's life by simply doing what they already do....serving drinks. 

It's simple for them to sign up, and the cause is more than worthwhile.
