WE HONOR OUR
WE SALUTE YOU
On Saturday, September 9th, 2023, the Purple Heart Foundation of North Carolina is hosting a POW/MIA daytime event as a meaningful way to honor those who have sacrificed so much for our country. By providing resources and support to those in attendance, we hope to make a lasting impact on their lives and help them navigate the challenges they may face. It will include a memorial service to honor our special guests, as well as distinctive recognition for those who remain missing in action. There will also be a complimentary catered lunch provided to all attendees, including veterans and their families. Each POW and MIA family will receive a thoughtful gift as a way to acknowledge their sacrifice and let them know they are not forgotten. We believe that this event will not only honor the memory of those who have served but also provide a meaningful way for our community to support those who have given so much to our nation. Come out and support our POW/MIA event, an important first-of-its-kind event.

Purple Heart Foundation of NC is an all-volunteer organization established to organize appreciation banquets throughout North Carolina. These dinners are held every year during the month of August as National Purple Heart Day takes place on August 7th.
As the success and popularity of these dinners grew, other cities in North Carolina wanted to participate. The most recent cities to begin hosting annual Purple Heart Dinners are Raleigh/Durham. Known as the Triangle Purple Heart Dinner, this dinner honored 93 Purple Heart recipients, 12 Gold Star Mothers and 4 family members representing an individual Killed in Action. In 2019, they honored our heroes in a sold out venue with over 900 in attendance.
Founded in 2010, Purple Heart Foundation honored local men and women who fought in all U.S. military conflicts and were bestowed with the Purple Heart medal. Purple Heart Foundation ultimately became the nonprofit known today as Purple Heart Foundation of North Carolina.
