Williamson County veteran wears ugly suit to raise money

Posted: Updated:

WILLIAMSON CO. -- A Williamson County veteran is raising money and awareness for fellow vets, all with the help of an ugly Christmas suit.

Tom Harness wore an intentionally ugly suit to businesses around the region as long as there was a donation to Team Red White and Blue. The goal was $1,000 but Harness quickly surpassed that.

Monday morning, Harness presented a check to the Marion chapter of Team RWB for more than $3,400.

"I chose Team RWB because I'm a member and I wanted to do something for veterans and everybody," he said. "Not just someone with a disability, but something to incorporate all veterans."

"Not only does it show we have the support of our veterans, but all veterans," said Allison Vandenberg of Team RWB.

Team RWB presented supporter Francis Pass, of Pass One Hour Heating & Air, an award Monday as well.
