VERO BEACH – On Saturday, February 9th, 2019, the Veterans Council of Indian River County invites the public to attend the Third Annual Prom Fundraiser in conjunction with Walking Tree Brewery on Saturday, February 9th, 2019 at 7pm.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $35 at the door. They can be purchased online, at Walking Tree Brewery, or at the Veterans Council headquarters. Ticket proceeds directly benefit the Veterans Council of Indian River County. Donations will be used for direct financial assistance for veterans, rides to medical appointments, connections to local resources and employment, and ceremonies and memorials honoring our community.

The annual event is decade themed. This year we are traveling back to the 1950s! Break out your poodle skirts and hair grease as guests are encouraged to dress to impress. Your ticket includes happy hour pricing on beer and wine, light fare from Wild Thyme Catering, access to the prom photo booth, a chance to win the costume competition, and a spot on prom court! Practice your hand-jive ahead of time as Swingsation’s 14th Avenue Dance Studio will be leading our dance competition and DJ’ing the event.

With more than 130 people in attendance at last year’s Prom, the Veterans Council looks forward to another successful fundraising event with Walking Tree Brewery. “Each year, this event gets better and better,” said Leydiana Collins, Director of Development. “Prom is about supporting your community and having a blast! On behalf of the veterans and the families we serve, we thank Walking Tree Brewery for hosting us each year and our supporters who make fundraising so fun!”
