American Heroes Day
Our annual veterans appreciation event for 2019 has been scheduled! The Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation will host American Heroes Day to honor the men and women who have bravely served our country. This is our way to say thank you and provide veterans with a day of outdoor fun and camaraderie.
This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, August 23, 2019. Hours will be 11AM – 7PM. There is no fee to military men and women to attend, but all must register by contacting our office at 434-476-7038.
Activities will be led by industry experts. This action-packed day will consist of fishing, archery, skeet and target shooting, and perhaps a game or two of corn hole. Lunch and dinner will be provided. Then, of course, there will be prizes awarded for the best performers in the competitions, along with some random drawings for other prizes. Each veteran will receive a gift bag filled with items to take home. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.
We are so excited about this year’s event and hope that you are too. We wish that we could accommodate extended family members, but are unable to due to logistics. This is a casual day in a location off the beaten path, so please dress appropriately.
If you would like to be a sponsor or contribute items for prizes for this event, we welcome your partnership. Contact us at 434-476-7038 for more information.
