ARVets Salute Gala

With the holidays approaching, now is the perfect time to honor and show support for Arkansas veterans at our Salute Gala.

After last year’s big success, ARVets is proud to announce we are holding our second annual Salute Gala at 6:30pm on November 21, 2014, at the Clinton Presidential Library. This gala provides our local community with a chance to pay tribute to our veterans by raising money to help us continue our mission in offering much needed services to these honorable men and women. In order to continue offering these crucial programs and services, which offer job training, housing assistance, and health supports, we need your continued support.

Veterans Day is a time to honor Arkansas Heroes and pay tribute to their service and sacrifice for our freedom. ARVets, a statewide non-profit organization providing innovative programs that improve the lives of Veterans and their families, is on the frontlines of helping Veterans daily. The ARVets team was out in full force on Veterans Day and celebrated former servicemen and women.

Throughout November, ARVets will host a variety of events to raise awareness about Veterans issues. So far, the ARVets team hosted a small business development workshop for Veterans, identified and assessed the needs of homeless Veterans, and worked with Arvest Bank to raise money for Veteran services. The festivities continue with the annual “Salute” gala, a benefit that commemorates three years of service at ARVets and celebrates the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform.
