The Honor Flight of South Florida will be hosting several upcoming events. All members of the public are invited. The Honor Flight Network is a nonprofit organization created solely to honor America's Veterans. The purpose of the Honor Flight program is to transport America's Veterans free of charge to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to honor the service and sacrifice they have made on behalf of our country.
Please take note of the events below:
- Military Appreciation Day (MAD), Saturday, June 23, 2018
Free daytime activities include a silent auction as well as military vehicles and memorabilia, music, children's activities, first responder demonstrations, craft shows and vendors, food trucks, video presentations of the Virtual Honor Flight Experience, and much more.

- Patriotic concert, Sunday, July 1, 2018
Get an early start on celebrating the 4th of July with this special free concert featuring the Fort Lauderdale Symphonic Winds (formally the American Legion Band), an orchestra featuring nearly 70 musicians. Admission is free, but we will be accepting donations for Honor Flight. This will be a great opportunity for guardians to invite and re-connect with their Veterans.
The concert is scheduled for 3 p.m., with doors opening at 2 p.m., at First Baptist FTL, 301 E. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 33301. Many of you may know First Baptist as the church with the famous Christmas Pageant. They are providing complimentary tickets to the Christmas Pageant for an audience drawing.
