From everyone who helped put together this event and help Operation Honor Guard thank you. We raised a total of $151,650 from our event, crushing our original goal of $120,000 thanks to your support and generous donations. From Decatur to Danville, from Mattoon to Champaign, we all came together for a common goal to help Honor Guard members provide services at veteran funerals, purchase materials, and more. If you couldn’t make it out during the event or are still wanting to donate, you can donate online using the button down below.
“I share a deep gratitude to all of the WCIA viewers for coming out again and blowing this year’s total away. If you’ll have me back next year, we’re out to do bigger and better things.” – Operation Honor Guard founder Rich Darby.
On May 10, 2023, WCIA 3 hosted its 10th annual backlot event in support of Operation Honor Guard. We collected donations from the community and our proud sponsors to help veterans who continue to serve our country.
