The Kentucky Veterans of the Year is committed to honoring all veterans living and deceased. Our Awards Banquet each November is a First Class event with food, fun, entertainment and all things veteran. As you might suspect, to host such a grand event is very expensive. The Kentucky Veterans of the Year initiative believes every dollar spent on recognizing the sacrifice and service of our Kentucky Heroes is well worth it. Most of the money raised to pay for the Banquet comes from the generosity of our Corporate Sponsors. Many have expressed to us an interest in helping to finance the Banquet, but don't want to buy a sponsorship or advertise.
They just want a way to donate what they can to help in the celebration.
This year, for the first time, we are establishing a way for people to make donations to help cover the costs. Although everyone that donates will be recognized by name (or listed as autonomous) in our Event Program, the amounts of the donation will not be listed. Donations can be as little as $10 or as much as you wish.
We hope doing this will help everyone who donates feel more engaged and a part of our effort to praise Kentucky veterans who are "Still serving" their country by serving their neighbors and communities.
Depending on your tax situation, 100% of your donation is tax deductible.
The Kentucky Veterans of the Year initiative is a program of Operation Outreach: the signature veterans program of the
Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana.
