ABBEVILLE, LA – In honor of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the Louisiana Military Museum will host its 1st Annual Patriot Day Banquet on Saturday, September 11 from 5-8pm. This elegant evening will include a special 9/11 tribute, a catered dinner served by our “celebrity” board members, and an hour-long patriotic musical performance by the National World War II Museum’s Victory Belles. A live and silent auction will help raise funds to unveil a brand-new exhibit that supports the museum’s mission “to honor our veterans and remember their stories.” This permanent exhibit will highlight Louisiana’s military contributions and feature relevant artifacts, c. 1700-present.
Limited numbers of individual and group tickets are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/1st-annual-patriot-day-banquet-tickets-167129951183?aff=ebdssbdestsearch.
