Tickets available for Heroes New Hope Foundation spring banquet
The Heroes New Hope Foundation still has tickets available for its annual Disabled Veteran Spring Turkey Hunt Banquet, which helps fund the nonprofit organization’s efforts to provide opportunities for disabled veterans to participate in outdoor activities they once enjoyed and celebrates the end of a week of hunting by five “heroes” visiting the county from across the country.
“Come join us for a casual night of fabulous food as well as entertainment provided by the Pix & Stix band,” Heroes New Hope executive board member Michael Wells said. “We have an outstanding group of disabled veterans coming in for the spring turkey hunt from around the country. Come enjoy dinner and fellowship with them. Be enlightened with slide shows and stories of their adventures in the Sullivan area.”
Friday’s event at the Sullivan Elks Club, 606 W. Wolfe St. in Sullivan, includes raffles, a 50/50 drawing, a silent auction, music and a cash bar. Heroes New Hope T-shirts and hoodies will also be available.
Dinner begins at 6 p.m. Tickets are available for a $20 donation, with a choice of ribeye steak or chicken available.
“All proceeds go to help fund the Heroes New Hope Foundation mission,” Wells said.
Those interested in tickets can call (812) 217-3050. The dinner culminates the week of hunting, which has already begun for five veterans.
“Heroes New Hope Foundation is proud to announce our heroes are coming,” Wells said on Thursday. “The spring turkey hunt is set and we have five disabled veterans from around the country coming to Sullivan for this annual event. Please join Heroes New Hope Foundation in welcoming the following individuals to our awesome community.”
Those participating this spring include Don Bickham, Miami, Florida; Bryan Corcoran, South Lebanon, Ohio; Brian Harris, Chicago, Illinois; Nate Harrison, Kansas City, Missouri and Jon Eyer, Lakeland, Florida.
