El Dorado Bar in Oliver, Wis. is holding a customer appreciation and veterans benefit event Saturday. 

Owner Todd Pfeffer said this is the bar's second-annual event to raise money for homeless veterans in the area. 

There will be food, a horseshoe tournament, outside karaoke, raffles and more starting at 11 a.m. and running throughout the day. 

Pfeffer said supporting veterans is important cause to him because he has had many family members who have served in the military. 

"It's important that veterans get their share," Pfeffer said. "I don't always agree how the government spends our money, so what can I do? This is what I can do."
