Bill Hudson of LC Industries and ABC 11 will be honored as community leaders who support the military. Kellie Pickler will also be in attendance to show her support for the military.

You'll enjoy an exciting evening of dinner, dancing and ceremony unlike you've ever experienced. There will also be a live and silent auction.
