Salisbury Chamber, UMES to hold dinner honoring veterans

Posted

After a year’s hiatus yielding to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore are bringing back their “Salute to Our Veterans” gala.

The Thursday, Nov. 11, event pays tribute to local military veterans and gets under way at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception at the Richard A. Henson Center on the UMES campus, followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

Proceeds from ticket sales, which are limited because of UMES’ Covid-19 protocols, will go to the Silver Star Scholarship Fund to support first-year students who are honorably discharged veterans, a child of a veteran or a child of a service member killed in action.

Individual tickets are $75; corporate sponsorships for a table of eight are $600.

Tickets can be purchased online.
