We have the privilege and honor of supporting those who have served our country so tirelessly and with such dedication at the Veteran's Passport 2 Hope Gala. We provided a completely full service planning experience for the group of volunteers and board members from venue selections, vendors, design, logistics to auction solicitation & management plus more. The evening featured a traditional honor program with Color Guard, Big Pipers, National Anthem, and Missing Man table. We gave out awards to those who have served veterans in our community and across the country. The night was filled with inspiring stories including that of the Executive Director who was Skyped in after receiving his 78th surgery from his service.
