Veterans Honor Dinner
October 5 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This October, East Tennessee PBS will host a Veteran Honor Dinner to celebrate the area men and women who have served our country. The event is being sponsored by Pilot/Flying J, Food City, The City of Knoxville, Covenant Health, Visit Knoxville, Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority, and the Clayton Foundation.
The dinner will be held at The Foundry in World’s Fair Park on October 5, 2017 from 5:30 – 9:00. Tickets are available online at www.EastTennesseePBS.org/dinner.
Proceeds will go towards the production of veterans programs on East Tennessee PBS as well as supporting the needs of volunteers and visitors at The Wall That Heals, the half-scale mobile replica of the Vietnam War Memorial that will be in Knoxville October 4 through October 8. Every ticket purchased sponsors a veteran to attend the dinner.
This dinner coincides with the opening ceremony of The Wall That Heals and will bring together area veterans with our community for a fun night to celebrate the service and sacrifice of the brave men and women in East Tennessee.
Guests include Captain Bill Robinson, the longest-held American Enlisted POW, Mayor Tim Burchett and Mayor Madeline Rogero. Fanatic Brewery is providing a veteran’s brew, created especially for this event.
