This special evening brings together the servicemen and women who have given so much for our freedom, as well as members of our community who wish to recognize and honor their bravery and sacrifice.

Tickets are $100 and cover the cost of each attendee as well as sponsorship for a veteran to attend at no cost. A portion of each ticket sold also goes to Wreaths Across America to ensure that every grave at Knox County Veterans Cemeteries are honored with a wreath during the holiday season.

In addition to great fellowship, attendees of the dinner will have an opportunity to meet area veterans, community leaders and view new mini-documentaries feature some area programs helping veterans transition back into civilian life.

Guests include Mayors Madeline Rogero and Glenn Jacobs, as well as other local elected officials and military leaders. An announcement will also be made about a special post 9/11 Veterans Memorial that is coming to our region.

For tickets, table sponsorship or additional information, please contact Barbara Shipley at 865-595-0244 or bshipley@EastTennesseePBS.org or Kate Spears kspears@EastTennesseePBS.org or visit www.EastTennesseePBS.org/veteran.
