Gary Sinise will honor our nation's veterans, defenders, first responders and their families with a special benefit luncheon, Inspiration to Action, at Arlington International Racecourse on Sunday, August 3.
Proceeds from this day at the races will benefit the Gary Sinise Foundation which provides unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities for those in need.
The event will honor U. S. Army Sargeant Bryan Anderson who lost both his legs and much of his left arm in an IED attack three months before he finished his second tour in Iraq in 2005. He is a Purple Heart recipient.
Hosted by beloved comedian and Foundation Ambassador, Tom Dreesen, the program will begin at 11:30 am with the luncheon scheduled for noon. A $250 ticket will include a Chef's Table, Supreme Bar and a seat in the International Ballroom for the program.
Howard Sudberry, Sr. Director of Marketing and Communications for Arlington International Racecourse, will offer betting lessons and exciting auctioneer Greg Dellinger will be on hand to hammer down some unique auction packages for this worthy cause!
Come spend a day at Arlington and pay tribute to the brave men and women that protect us and have given so much for our country and our freedom. #GivingBack
