TAPS invites surviving family members and loved ones to apply to attend the 2018 TAPS Honor Guard Gala.
This formal event is held in our nation's capital to raise funds for TAPS and allows us to honor the amazing supporters who fund our mission. Not the typical TAPS event, survivors at the gala represent the story of the larger TAPS family and help us thank our supporters who make it possible to care for families of America's fallen heroes. You'll be seated with donors and supporters who fund our vital mission.
The main focus of the evening will be recognizing our many partners and sponsors. Survivors will have a chance to honor our heroes at the end of the night, onstage with one another and photos of our loved ones.
Although we would love to have all of our TAPS family present for this very special annual event, we are limited in space. Applicants will be selected through a lottery and notified by Feb. 6 of their selection status.
Please note we can only offer seats to survivors, and we aren't able to offer slots to friends who may wish to join you. In addition, you may only request two tickets per lottery application. If there are more than two individuals in your household who wish to attend, you'll need to fill out a separate application for those family members.
TAPS can't cover hotel or travel to the event, but if you are selected, we can offer suggestions for hotel accommodations.
