ATLANTA, June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As a proud sponsor of U.S. Expeditions and Explorations (USX), Zac Brown's Southern Ground will host the welcome home celebration at the company's 150,000 square foot Headquarters in Peachtree City, Georgia on Friday, June 17th.
On Tuesday, May 24th, 2nd Lt. Harold Earls, Retired Staff Sgt. Chad Jukes and Capt. Elyse Ping Medvigy became, as a team, the first active duty male and female soldier, and single–leg amputee military veteran to summit Mount Everest.
USX is a non-profit organization that summited Mount Everest to bring awareness to the veterans and active duty service members who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Zac has always taken a deep interest in supporting military members and their families. One element of Camp Southern Ground, Zac's non-profit passion project, will be its ability to act as a respite center for military families struggling with post-deployment issues, including PTSD. To further support the mission of Team USX, Zac outfitted the climbers with knives from Southern Grind, his metal works shop based at Southern Ground headquarters.
Southern Grind and the Southern Ground family of brands are excited to welcome the team home safely, and grateful to have been of service to Team USX on their journey.
Guests will be provided dinner by Chef Collins Woods, personal chef to Zac and his family, along with gluten free dessert options from Southern Grounds own "Doctor of Dough", Nicole Crane.
The climbers will participate in a moderated Q&A beginning at 7:00 pm ET. The Q&A will be live streamed via: http://southernreel.com/usx
