REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Leadership Redmond Class of 2023, along with the VFW Post 4108, organized the first annual Red, White and Blue Celebration. This benefit fundraiser was a huge success, with attendees enjoying food, music, dancing, raffles, and a silent auction. The highlight of the evening was the MIA-POW table ceremony led by the guest of honor, Dennis Guthrie.

This moment was a testament to the reason and cause for the celebration of the colors that unite America and deeply underscored the enduring sacrifices for our freedom.

Proudly sponsored by BasX Solutions, Redmond Industrial Park and Hooker Creek, this year's celebration
raised an impressive $12,000 for the local veterans of the Deschutes VFW Post. Proceeds from the event will be used for capital improvements, with a particular focus on procuring a brand-new HVAC system for the post facility which serves its members, auxiliary, all veterans, their families, and the public in our area.

If you missed the event, don't worry! You can visit the Red White & Blue Celebration Facebook page for more details about the event and how you can
get involved next year. It's a great opportunity to support our local veterans and show your appreciation for their service to our country.
