"I don't do it for the money / There's bills that I can't pay / I don't do it for the glory / I just do it anyway / Providing for our future's my responsibility"

Fogleman’s Wounded Warrior Music fest was founded by Dan Fogleman and Travis Goebel in 2014.  Dan approached Travis and asked if he would be willing to help plan and coordinate an event at the Fogleman Farm.  The event would include live music, a pig roast, and be a family oriented community event. Dan approached Travis in May and by September the first event was being held.  

The first year the event was known as Fall Fest.  Dan and Travis brought together a group of people to help them and that first year was a total success despite terrible weather.  They were able to raise $24,000 in one day which was donated to Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors Inc.  

After the event Dan and Travis brought together those that helped make the first event a success and asked if they would be willing to help again the next year.  All were on board.  The event was then renamed Foglemans Wounded Warrior Music Fest.  

The second year was also a success again raising $24,000 for Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors.  After the second success the small group decided it was time to become legitimate.   The organization became incorporated with the State of Pennsylvania, and applied for non-profitability with the IRS.

It is now the mission of Foglemans Wounded Warrior Music Fest to address, educate, coordinate, and provide aid and relief to offset the burden bore by the Veterans and their families that have been wounded in the Service of the Unites States of America. 

It is our duty to make sure these Veterans are taken care of in their time of need by helping to secure the things that they may not be able to acquire during their time of crisis.  

Our Veteran’s have served their nation in every conflict that they have been asked to serve.  Many of these men and women are recovering physically, mentally, or emotionally at a military hospital, Veterans Administration medical facility or with families at home, and many of them are in need of financial support.  Through generous donations we are able to assist our Veteran’s with this burden.  

We provide education by holding an annual event to raise social consciousness about the cause on a local, state, and national level, and to fundraise at this event in order to provide immediate relief and assistance to those Veteran’s wounded in the service of the United States of America regardless of race, ethnicity, or religion.

We are an independent organization and are not affiliated with any other veteran’s support organization, nor do we receive any funds from them.  

Our Board of Director’s is unpaid for what they do.  They do it because they believe in what they do.  The Board is elected each year, and meet monthly from October thru May and weekly June thru September.  We also have a large number of volunteers who help to make our annual event a success.  

Our Board of Director’s are as follows:

President: Dan Fogleman

Vice President: Doug Fogleman

Secretary: Travis Goebel

Treasuer: Eric Bucher

Entertainment Coordinator: Matt Creter

Advertising Director: Dave Reigle

Activities Coordinator: Bruce Shutt

Trustee: Steve Kelley

Trustee: Al Gerberich
