VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Veterans Day was extra sweet for Breanna Roe Kingsbury of Virginia Beach. She teamed up with a local cupcake shop to raise money for Wreaths Across America.
Proceeds from the cupcakes will go to Team Bear, which hopes to place two thousand wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery next month.
Kingsbury has raised more than $16,000 this year, but is hoping to get $30,000 before she takes her “Team Bear” to Arlington to lay the wreaths December 13. This year marks the 150th anniversary of Arlington, and Wreaths Across America is hoping to provide a wreath for each of the 235,000 graves there.
