WINSTON-SALEM — As the region’s leader in honoring and celebrating veterans, Trellis Supportive Care is hosting a remembrance and recognition luncheon from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 5, at Richard Childress Racing Special Event Center in Welcome.

Organizers at Trellis Supportive Care will commemorate this 75th international anniversary by celebrating the lives of the men and women who served during WWII and who participated in D-Day, the event that shaped the history of the 20th century. All WWII veterans in attendance, both combat and non-combat veterans, will be introduced and all veteran guests will be recognized.

“Thanks to our sponsors, especially the Gary Sinise Foundation, this event is free for all veterans and one guest each,” said Todd Clark, VP of clinical support services and the veterans program. “We hope the community will help encourage all veterans to attend, and make a special effort to share this news with our WWII veterans so that we can recognize them at the luncheon,” added Clark. Admission for non-veterans is $10.

Cameron Kent, a WWII historian and retired WXII 12 news anchor, will emcee the event. Along with the introduction of the WWII veterans and the recognition of all veterans, the program will include entertainment, a display of vintage military memorabilia and vehicles, a special raffle, and time for visiting sponsors. Guests will have free admission to the Richard Childress Racing Museum following the luncheon.

Interested participants who have questions, or would like to register, are encouraged to contact Trellis Supportive Care at 336-768-6157 ext. 1622.
