The Walk of Heroes Veterans War Memorial will be hosting their annual raffle featuring wonderful vacation-getaway prize packages through Sept. 30 to raise funds to continue building this awe-inspiring tribute to our military, located right in our backyard.

The Walk of Heroes Memorial, at 3001 Black Shoals Road in Black Shoals Park next to the Randy Poynter Reservoir, is a tribute to the brave men and women that fought and continue to fight for our freedom. Sculptures, quotes, carvings, and statues will provide the visitor with more insight of what went on during the five major wars of the 20th century.

Each raffle ticket, costing just $1, can go towards any of the nine prizes.

The prizes include:

- Atlanta weekend get-away with one room for two people for two nights and two breakfasts at the Sheraton Atlanta hotel
- A room for two for one weekend night and one breakfast for two at Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel
- One round of golf for two at Brasstown Valley Resort in Young Harris, GA
- Certificate for items from Legendary Whitetall Catalog or online
- One round of golf for two at Jim Fazio Golf Course in Brasley Resort, in Adairsville, Ga.
- Certificate for Nature Seen Gallery and Frame Shop in Conyers
- Four $10 dollar coupons for four meals at O'Charley's in Conyers
- Seven coupons, each for one free sandwich at Sonny's BBQ in Conyers.

The proceeds of this raffle will go towards building and adding to the rest of the Veteran's War Memorial.

This memorial allows visitors to tour the site at their own pace. While in the peaceful environment, people observing the memorial will be able to experience a sense of pride and appreciation for our troops of the past and present.

If interested in entering the raffle, call 770-786-2302 and entry forms will be conveniently sent to you. Checks are to be made out to "WOH RAFFLE" and mailed with one form per entry.
