Each year the NWTF sponsors events such as Jakes Day, the Wounded Warriors Turkey Hunt, youth hunts and Turkey Hunters Care Food Box Distribution. A portion of tonight’s proceeds will go to support those programs.

The fundraising banquet will be held at the Ball Farm Event Center with the doors opening at 5:30pm.  Dinner will be served at 7:00 o’clock.

Veterans and first responders were honored with pins at the annual Pine Mountain Longbeards banquet in June 2022.

There will be games all evening, meal, live and silent auctions, along with gun drawings. If you have already purchased a Gun Bash ticket (sold out), this includes one (1) meal only. If you anticipate bringing a guest, they will need a single admission ticket to attend.

Tickets are $35 per person or $70 per couple; sponsorships are also available for $250.

To purchase tickets or a sponsorship call 423-871-2200. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/15/2023-6AM)
