With President Trump arriving at the airport near the time of our event, be sure to give yourself extra time to travel to the event.  Certain roads may be periodically closed while he is travelling through.  The closer you arrive to the start time of 5pm, the less chance you will have of being impacted.  We've been assurred that the entrance to the event center will not be closed.

Operation Welcome Home has served over 800 military members and families in the past 9 years.  To honor their service and to help deal with the challenges of military service, this program provides retreats for military members, veterans, and their families at no cost. 

This event is a way to celebrate their service along with raising the funds needed to run this program.  We would love for you to sponsor a table, half table, or buy individual tickets.  Invite your friends, family, or employees to join you to help spread the word about this. There will also be a live and silent auction. 

Debbie Anthony to perform at Honoring our Heroes


Country singer and entertainer Debbie Anthony shares handcrafted songs with vibrant melodies and heartfelt lyrics that tell tales about lasting love, faithfulness, family and strength that endures through life’s bittersweet ebbs and flows. Her dynamic recordings showcase her soulful, honeyed voice that melts over a bed of lush instrumentation. A playful and deeply-connected performer, she delivers truth through energetic live shows. Able to deliver spirit-driven messages about real life through both reflective ballads and up-tempo tunes, Debbie channels her wisdom, sass and positivity through every note. 

Recently signed by Nashville country label, SSM Entertainment, Debbie is once again bringing her authentic message and genuine personality to country radio with her brand-new release, “Faithful”, moving up the charts to #17 (The New Music Weekly chart).  In February, her debut single, “Lucky in Love” went all the way to #8.  After being release in the U.K., “Lucky in Love” reached #17  on the Hotdisc Top 40 country chart.
