The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes is sponsoring a Veteran’s Day dinner and auction Nov. 11 at the West Belmont Place Event Center in Leesburg.

Since its establishment in 2004, the Leesburg-based Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes has provided a lifeline to thousands of America’s combat-wounded veterans. Its Emergency Financial Aid program has stopped foreclosure proceedings on veterans’ homes and kept their vehicles from being repossessed. Its innovative Heroes Thanking Heroes program provides transitional, part-time, flexible employment to nearly 50 combat-wounded veterans or their primary caregivers, enabling them to make phone calls from their homes, usually to personally thank donors for their contributions to the Coalition.
