Event description

Description

Please join us for an old fashioned, all-american, night of homestyle broasted chicken, apple pie, live big band music and swing dancing. Step into 1940's America complete with vehicles, music and living historians to help you learn more about what it was to live during this time in our national history. You are also welcome to dress in your best 1940's style clothes for a chance to win a prize in the best dressed contest!

The purpose of this event is to raise awareness about our mission. The Veterans' Perspective aims to record and preserve our country’s history through the stories of our military veterans. By video recording these interviews and making them available to the public, our veterans’ service becomes more than a respectful salute to the flag, it becomes a living tribute for generations to learn from. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go towards sharing the stories of our veterans.

Another goal of the event is to continue to bring the community together with our veterans. Attendees will include veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afganistan and many other places around the world. You can learn more about what it truly is to be a veteran by meeting one yourself.

The evening starts with social hour, raffle from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm, dinner, catered by Lidderdale, and speeches from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm. There will be live music and dancing as well. What can you do for the Iowa Veterans’ Perspective Charitable Foundation?
