5th Annual Price of Freedom Gala

  • 78 photos
  • The Joshua Chamberlain Society held their 5th Annual Price of Freedom Gala this year at the Renaissance Grand Ballrooms Downtown. The evening began with a silent auction, cocktail s and hors d’oevres. Shortly thereafter, Col T. Shane Tomko held the USMC colors and the National anthem followed by the parading of the beef and then a dinner was served. Several JCS Heroes were honored at the Gala, and all proceeds benefit severely wounded military service members and families of killed-in-action members. As in the words of a wise King, “No one shows greater love than when he lays down his life for his friends.” The heroes honored at this year’s event, both fallen and wounded undoubtedly proved to uphold that exact quote.
