Honoring Our Heroes

Downtown Waterfront Alliance Veteran’s Banner Project
– Honoring Gig Harbor’s Heroes –

The Downtown Waterfront Alliance once again sponsoring the Veteran’s Banner Project.  Applications for this unique opportunity to honor those who have served, or are currently serving, are being accepted.  Banner applications will be accepted until August 31 at a cost of $200.00 per banner.  This is not a fundraiser for the Alliance.  Money collected will pay for the production costs and shipping of the banners and any remaining funds will go to support “Race for a Soldier” and the PTSD Foundation.  They will direct those funds appropriately to local veterans and those currently serving.  The Banners will hang in our community from mid-September through late November 2019.  After that time, the banners will be available to the families.

We have space for forty banners in 2019, and they will be approved in the order in which they are received. Pictures in uniform are required in a high quality digital form. If you do not have a digital copy, please bring the picture to the Alliance Office (3311 Harborview Drive, #101) and we will have the photo digitized and return it to you.

The application is available at the Alliance Office (3311 Harborview Drive, Suite 101), at 253-514-0071, or via e-mail at info@ghhwa.org. Applications will also be available at the Information Booth at the Waterfront Farmers Market each Thursday, 1-7, June 6 through August 29, or until all 40 banners are purchased.

The message is clear: “We honor and appreciate our local Heroes”.
