VENICE - Hundreds attended the viewing party for a very special episode of Mike Rowe’s Returning the Favor that was filmed right here in Florida.

President of My Warrior’s Place in Ruskin, Florida Kelly Kowall founded the nonprofit in memory of her son Corey Kowall to provide veterans and their families to retreat from the world and relax. Drinks and food were provided as the show aired shedding light on all the work Kowall does.

“Not only was it wonderful to be showcased, I mean we’ve gotten more recognition in the last week than we probably have in the all the years we’ve been in existence,” said Kowall.

The full episode can be found on Returning the Favor Facebook’s page. For more information on how to get involved with My Warrior’s Place visit their Facebook page.
