We were just informed that Pete "The Pirate" Carolan will be doing a special painting honoring the men of Operation Thunderhead and the POW's for our event. It will be one of our special auction items at the event.

Each Patriot Sponsorship table ($2,000) will feature a horn made by Richard Hetzell as it's centerpiece. These horns will only be offered at this event and will tie in with the evening's theme.

Our moderator, retired Navy SEAL Senior Chief Dave Hall and artist Elwood Risk have donated one of the full size prints of their art work "Until it Hurts"
