Since Hire Heroes USA’s inception in 2007, Vonder Haar has donated over $500,000 both monetarily and through in-kind donations. On a personal level, Joe’s enthusiasm regarding the Hire Heroes USA program has also led to partnerships with such companies as 7-11 and Anheuser Busch. His continued dedication to our organization can only bring about more wonderful partnerships in the years ahead. The Hire Heroes USA Team extends its deepest gratitude to Joe Vonder Haar.
Hire Heroes proudly and humbly presents the 2010 Pacesetter Award to Joe Vonder Haar, Vice President of the Convenience Store Channel and Military Sales for Anheuser-Busch, Inc., in recognition of his initiative and significant contributions to Hire Heroes USA, through numerous fundraising events and opening the door for partnership opportunities with companies to help hire veterans. As a sponsor of the St. Louis Cardinals Legend’s Camp and the 1st Annual Salute to Veterans Golf Classic events in Pittsburgh and Alpharetta, Vonder Haar and Anheuser Bush have donated over $100,000 worth of beverage product and prizes this year alone.
