As the Beast Tour builds, this writer has been keeping readers abreast of all the changes and courses of events to take place the week of August 14 through 17 this year. The latest addition to the string of events that this MMA Legend will be appearing at will be a charity fund raiser for VFW Post 8235. This is an interesting event that will entail two major competitions, being an all male arm wrestling and female submission grappling event. The cause is a worthy one, being the VFW. For those that don't know the VFW or Veterans of Foreign Wars has a long history of taking care of its own. The VFW was "For Us By Us" before the term was cool. They support the local community on numerous levels from hosting their own charity events to raise monies for noble causes, homecomings for active duty military personnel and even Meals on Wheels.
This events highlights are :
- Fun and games for youth and adult
- Food and Beverages available on site
- Local vendors
- DJ and Announcer
- All Men's Arm Wrestling
- Women's Submission Grappling Championship
- Special Guest Appearance by celebrity and MMA/ Pro Wrestling Legend Dan "The Beast" Severn.

The grappling competition and the arm wrestling competitions may provide for a great opportunity for local talents to get out there and show what they got on the competition arena. These events require the competitors to raise their own funding to donate to the VFW via sponsorships. Both male and woman competitors must have a minimum sponsorship of 100 dollars in their account before they can compete. All sponsorships are collected via a website which also talleys the amounts donated. Competitors can win two prizes in their perspective gender catagories. A prize will be available for the champion of each tournament as well as second and third place competitors in arm wrestling and grappling. There will also be a prize for the competitor to raise the most funds for the VFW.
This is a great opportunity for both local businesses and local talents to establish themselves in the community. This event is expected to be a major event and is the finale for the 2014 DFW Beast Tour. Dan Severn will also be available for autographs and photos throughout the day. The event is currently still looking for Sponsors and Competitors as well as voluteers. Competitor deadline will be no later than midnight 15 August. Competitors will still be able to channel sponsorships to raise money up until noon on 17 August. After that time if the minimum sponsorship is not collected the competitors may not compete. There will also be a press conference for the event to be held the afternoon or evening of 16 August.
