Walk of Heroes fundraiser offers trip to Branson, Mo.
Drawing on Aug. 7, Purple Heart Day

The Walk of Heroes Veterans Memorial is offering the public a chance to win an all-expenses paid VIP vacation  for two while ensuring the sacrifices and service of military men and women are not forgotten.

The WOH, located in Black Shoals Park on the shores of the Randy Poynter Reservoir in north Rockdale, is holding a fundraising raffle that will be drawn Aug. 7 for several prime prizes.

The featured prize is an all-expenses-paid trip package for two to Branson, MO on Veteran's Day weekend in November, a $2,200 value. 

Other prizes include a Kel-Tec PMR 30 .22 magnum pistol ($600 Value), $500 Coupon to be applied to any cruise offered by GalaxSea Cruises in Conyers, and a Stauer Compendium hybrid watch with two year replacement guarantee ($400 Value).

Tickets are $5 each or $10 for three. For more information or purchase raffle tickets, call 770-786-2302.

"The key is getting the word out," said Clack. The goal is 5,000 tickets for the national memorial located in Rockdale, which aims to educate future generations about the wars and conflicts of the 20th and 21st century.

"Branson is the premiere destination in America for veterans and reunions of veterans," wrote Clack. "They host more veterans' reunions than any city in America." 

The winners of the all-expenses-paid trip for two would leave Saturday, November 9, and return Tuesday, November 12, and would participate in Veterans Day 2013 activities. Saturday night, the winners will be guests at the City’s Annual Military and Veterans Dinner/Ceremony. On Veterans Day, they will even get to ride in the Veterans Day Parade. The weekend's entertainment includes nightly shows at the “Clay Cooper’s County & Music Express” and the “Grand Country Music Hall.” In addition, the winners will be provided a coupon book with discounts for stores and activities throughout the Branson area.
