STAMFORD, Conn., May 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SoldierStrong, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing advanced medical technologies to veterans, will host a benefit on Thursday, May 31, at 6 p.m. at the New York Yacht Club in Manhattan.

The event will honor Leora and Steven Levy for their support of military and veterans’ causes, and will feature special guest Rob O’Neill, a former Navy SEAL.

“We are thrilled to be gathering such an outstanding group of honorees, guests, and speakers who are coming together in support of our veterans. We are grateful for their commitment to our cause to provide veterans with cutting-edge medical and rehabilitation technologies," said Chris Meek, co-founder and chairman of SoldierStrong.

The evening’s celebrations will include a keynote address by Fox News’ Dana Perino, who served as the 26th White House Press Secretary and currently hosts “The Daily Briefing” on Fox News.

“I am excited to join SoldierStrong and its supporters in honoring the sacrifices of our veterans and helping them to get back on their feet after nobly serving our country,” said Perino.

Army Veteran Dan Rose, who was injured while on active duty and left paralyzed, will stand and walk using the EksoGTTM wearable exoskeleton to demonstrate the type of devices that SoldierStrong donates.
