Show Me Honor Awards Dinner – Saluting One Missourian a Year for Outstanding Service to Veterans
K9s on The Front Line invites you to join us for our second annual charity dinner at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Jefferson City to support Missouri Veterans. Last year’s event was a huge success and we know this year will be even better! This year’s guest speaker will be Sgt. Craig Grossi and his four-legged best friend Fred, author(s) of Craig & Fred – A Marine, A Stray Dog, & How They Saved Each Other – the true story of a US Marine and the stray dog he met on the Afghan battlefield. Craig & Fred are both passionate about supporting K9s on The Front Line and their story is an incredible one.
Of course, we will honor one amazing Missourian for his dedication and service to Veterans and you won’t want to miss the chance to salute him with us! Following all of this we will have a brief live auction and live music for those of us that just don’t want the night to end! All proceeds benefit K9s on The Front Line, a nonprofit providing trained service dogs to Missouri combat Veterans affected by PTSD, at no cost to them. Go to k9sonthefrontline.org to learn more!
