Adventure Community Church, 6509 Northwest Blvd., Davenport, will host a fundraiser Friday to honor veterans and raise funds for the Honor Flight of the Quad-Cities.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. A flag presentation by American Legion Post 26 will be held, and a meal will be served beginning at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $15 per person or $70 per table.

Raffle tickets and 50/50 tickets will each be available for $1 each.

The American Legion Post 26 will be the Honor Guard for the event. Derek Grant, who performs on the bagpipes when veterans return from Washington, D.C., will play “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes.

Bill Hall will sound “Taps” for fallen soldiers. Ken and Debbie Rice have created a display to honor fallen soldiers from Iowa.

The purpose of the Honor Flight is to fly America’s veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorials dedicated to them. Applications are being accepted for World War II or Korean-era veterans, or any veteran with a terminal illness.
