The Honoring the Sacrifice Foundation announced the First Annual American Heroes Dinner. The event will take place June 6 at The Chattanoogan Hotel at 7 p.m.
Retired U.S. Army Colonel Danny McKnight (Black Hawk Down) will be the guest of honor.
The event will serve as a fundraiser for The Honoring the Sacrifice Foundation. This newly-formed foundation was started by Sgt. Andrew Smith with the help of his family in late 2013. Sgt. Smith’s unique experience as a double leg amputee led him to start an organization that seeks to honor the sacrifice that so many of our nations bravest make every day.
The mission of The Honoring the Sacrifice Foundation is to provide the needed resources, financial and material, to severely injured men and women and their immediate families, whose injuries were incurred while serving our country.
The foundation does not offer specific programs; rather, it answers the direct needs, large and small, of the injured service member. The foundation also seeks to promote community awareness and create opportunities to express gratitude for the sacrifices that military men and women make on a daily basis.
Corporate sponsorships, tables, T-shirts, and individual tickets are available at www.HonoringTheSacrifice.org.
