The second annual Veterans Gala will be hosted on Thursday, Nov. 9, at 6 p.m. at the Auburn Marriott Opelika Hotel and Conference Center at Grand National. This year’s special guest is Staff Sgt. Travis Mills, who was was critically injured on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan by an IED while on patrol, losing portions of both legs and both arms. He is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries. His motto, “Never give up. Never quit,” has allowed Travis to overcome life’s challenges and defy the odds. He is an inspiration to all.

Table prices start at $1,500. Individual Seats are $125. RSVP and arrange payment with Robyn Westbrook, 844-3073, before Nov. 2.
