American Legion Scholarship Charity Event

The American Legion Legacy Scholarship

Since the inception of The American Legion Legacy Scholarship in 2001 following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, The American Legion has offered its support to the children of fallen post-9/11 service members through this scholarship. Beginning with the 2017 award year, The American Legion expanded the scholarship to include children of VA-rated, post-9/11 veterans with a disability of 50 percent or higher. Since 2006, American Legion Riders (ALR) nationwide have participated in the Legion Legacy Run to raise money annually for the Legacy Scholarship Fund.

The American Legion and ALR remain committed to honoring the memory and service of our fallen and disabled comrades by ensuring that their children are afforded the best possible educational opportunities.

This year, Addictions Tattoo & Art Studio, and our artists, in association with ALR Chapter 177 (Fairfax Va.), are once again honored to host the Second Annual American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund Tattoo Charity Event. The event will be held Aug. 7 from 10 am until 6 pm at Addictions Tattoo & Art Studio, located at 9814 Liberia Avenue, Manassas, VA 20112.

Our artists have created a wide range of ?flash? artwork for the event and are sure you?ll find something to your liking. All proceeds generated by the tattoo work will be donated to the Scholarship Fund. If you don?t want a tattoo, that?s fine; you can always donate to the Scholarship Fund to support the families of our injured and fallen service members.

There will also be several raffles for some beautiful patriotic items you won’t want to miss. In addition, several vendors will also be attending the event and donating 50 percent of all proceeds to the fund of any item purchased. We will be supplying food and drinks and plenty of good times. There is plenty of parking so please make plans to attend. We look forward to seeing you!!

Cosponsoring the event this year so far are;
III% United Patriots of Virginia
Hudson Woodworking and Restoration, Chantilly VA

We are talking to other business owners in Virginia to help sponsor the event. If you would like to support this effort in honoring our fallen and disabled service members and their families, please contact Addictions Tattoo & Art Studio at (703) 392 -TATT (8288).

Well we want to take a moment and introduce you to Robby Belch, a young man with an incredible talent for unique photography.? No need to say much, but rather post some of his work. One of the photos below is of my Ironhorse motorcycle that Robby took one Sunday morning (It is a picture of the print so not the best for viewing, so stop by the shop and see the real deal).? You really have to see the photo in person to appreciate the work he is able to do with his camera and processing techniques.

We hope to?do some?future promotions of his work and actually holding an event here at the shop where you can bring your bike or car by and let Robby do his magic with his camera.
