This year, Vet Events Tally is bringing The Cost of Freedom Tribute to Tom Brown Park. This moving outdoor tribute honors all whose daily job it is to put themselves in harm's way. The Tribute includes an 80% replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall as well as displays honoring all Veterans and Active Duty personnel, our First Responders, those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 as well as over 45 display boards honoring our Veterans from the Revolutionary war to the current conflicts in the Global War on Terrorism. We invite you to help us in make the 5-day visit from the Cost of Freedom Tribute possible.
We are currently seeking sponsors for our 2014 roster of activities. Sponsorship includes recognition of your organization at all of major events and gives your organization unparalleled exposure to not only the Tallahassee community but to all of the visitors from the surrounding Big Bend region who will come to pay respect at the Cost of Freedom Tribute during its 5-day stay at Tom Brown Park.
