We’re excited to once again support The Patriot Gala this year, coming up soon on November 5th.

Last year’s event was very patriotic as “it recognizes and values what our men and women give to our country with their selfless sacrifice and it ultimately inspires all in attendance to share some of themselves to support our military. It is an evening filled with laughter, tears and warmth.” (Patriot Military Family Foundation Website)

The highlight of the evening includes honored military speakers and guests and is a tribute to the men and women who have served from our great state of North Carolina.

This event includes a silent and live auction with everything from jewelry, wine and dine, travel, sporting events and more to bid on.

Last year four service dogs were presented to local veterans suffering from PTSD and this year four more will be awarded.
