The Honor Flight of South Florida is a locally based non-profit group that charters commercial airplanes to fly local South Florida WWII Veterans to their $200 million Memorial. Less than 5% of the16 million veterans have actually been to, in Washington D.C., at no cost to the Veteran. The Honor Flight does all of this with zero paid employees and are extremely proud to say that one hundred percent of every donated dollar goes directly to giving WWII Veterans an experience to honor their service and commemorate their time in the US Armed Forces.
$20 suggested donation, includes access to the event, food and drinks. #VeteransDay @Tap42Bar
