People paid tribute to service members and veterans at “Celebration of Heroes” Saturday night at Delta Dental Stadium.
Swim With A Mission, a nonprofit supporting veterans, hosted the event.
The celebration featured live music, vendors and K-9 demonstrations. WMUR’s Jennifer Vaughn was the emcee.
Organizers said the goal is to raise awareness of veteran assistance organizations.
“I think we’re at about $1.5 million in those three days now and we’re hoping to get to $2 million, and hopefully that’s going to happen with all of the work we’re doing here tonight,” Jeff Hiatt said.
Swim With A Mission held its sixth annual swim race Saturday morning at Newfound Lake.
