17th Annual Patriot Cruise and Salute
As we celebrate our 17th anniversary of the Patriot Cruise & Salute, we are seeking your assistance in identifying exceptional individuals who have shown remarkable bravery and selflessness in saving the lives of others, often at great risk to themselves. Our mission is to pay tribute to our heroes from the US Armed Forces, Gold Star Families, First Responders, Law Enforcement, and Firefighters.
If you know of someone who deserves to be recognized, we invite you to recommend them for our upcoming event on 9/16/2023. We want to express our gratitude to them and their loved ones by providing a day of relaxation and appreciation, which includes a boat ride with volunteers who wish to show their appreciation. Following the boat ride, we will gather everyone at Prince William Marina for a meal and coin ceremony to honor each hero.
We are seeking volunteers to serve as boat captains, first mates, and guides to assist our honorees throughout the event. Additionally, we need ground crew members to help with setup, teardown, and assisting honorees on and off the boats. We are also accepting donations of any kind to create thank-you bags for each honoree. To fund the event, we are selling raffle tickets and sponsorships.
The day’s activities will start at 11 am and conclude around 6 pm, with some volunteers starting as early as 8:00 am. We welcome your recommendations and appreciate any support you can offer to help us find and honor these deserving individuals.
If you know someone who deserves recognition or would like to learn more about how you can support our cause, please visit our website at https://www.patriotcruise.org/ and contact us.
