Please join the DuPage Veterans Foundation in honoring our WWII and Korean War Era Veteran heroes!!! All proceeds from this event will benefit Honor Flight Chicago. Come out and have lunch with these special men and women in a show of appreciation for their service to our Country. If you have a family member or know of a Veteran of either of these eras, please invite them or bring them out for this event.

A moving patriotic program including the Naperville Municipal Band; Marine Corps League Color Guard; The Naperville Firefighters Highland Guard; and more, will pay tribute to our honored guests.

Lunch is included in the price of admission along with some great entertainment from the "Legacy Girls" who will perform WWII/Korean War era music for the enjoyment of everyone. View period military vehicles, aircraft, and memorabilia on display.

Most importantly, each of our WWII and Korean War heroes in attendance will be recognized for their service during the program. This is a unique opportunity to hear their amazing stories and shake their hands in gratitude. WGN's Steve Sanders is back again to emcee our event.

As part of our fundraiser event, we have a wonderful silent auction and several "special" raffles during the event. Donations are accepted at any time and we are a 501©3 organization. Please check our website or call us for additional details.
