On Saturday, May 4th at the DuPage Airport, please join the DuPage Veterans Foundation in honoring our WWII and Korean War Veteran heroes! All proceeds from this event will benefit Honor Flight Chicago.

Last year's event was a huge success. We were able to honor over 100 WWII Veterans and raised enough funds for an entire flight for Honor Flight Chicago. This year we invite as our guests and pay tribute to our Korean War Veterans as well as our WWII heroes. Come out and have lunch with these special men and women in a show of appreciation for their service to our Country.
