Cedar Canyon hosts the Inaugural Veteran’s Freedom Ball

Cedar Canyon is hosting the Inaugural Hopkins County Veteran’s Freedom Ball on April 7 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.  This event is to honor our active and retired Military here in Hopkins County and, equally as important – to raise money for continued maintenance, upkeep, and updates to the Memorial and to engrave the remaining names of Veterans on the Walls.  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
