In honor of Veterans Day, the 4th annual Heroes’ Celebration will take place this Saturday at the Cincinnati Marriott North in West Chester. The event will benefit the Heroes’ Fund, which aids local military families in financial crisis.
The event itself will feature dinner, dancing, a cash bar, a silent auction and a raffle that will give away a 60” LED flat-screen HDTV and a Blue-ray home theater sound system. Tickets to attend the event are $65 each and $585 for a table of 10.
The event will feature guest speaker Colonel Dean Smittle, 700 WLW’s military analyst, and music from the Tom Daugherty Orchestra.
The Heroes’ Fund, according to the event’s press release, provides one-time financial support to active duty military serving in a combat zone and veterans who served in a combat zone who are currently residing in Butler, Hamilton, and Warren counties in Ohio.
Since its establishment in 2007, more than $52,000 has been awarded to area combat veterans.
