More than $50,000 was donated to the Veterans Honor Flight of Southern Illinois. In total $51,855 was raised from both the donations and exhibitor fees of the expo that was constructed in Southern Illinois. The donations were received on both July 27th and 28th 2019. The program provides veterans the opportunity to have an all expenses paid trip to the nation’s capital to see the monuments built in their honor. Next year’s Expo is scheduled for Saturday, July 26 and Sunday, July 27 at the Pavilion in Marion.
