The entire debt in building this $1.2 million Memorial was retired within the first three years; however, there is no perpetual funding available. The goal with this very first Freedom Ball is to breathe new life into the Memorial Committee, raise awareness in the community for the needs of the Memorial itself, and to engrave the remaining 2000 names on the Walls. Several hundred visitors come each year to the Plaza in Sulphur Springs to see this amazing, moving, and beautiful tribute. For pricing and ticket information, visit www.hcfreedomball.com.
