Every Salute has a different theme, and this year’s “Celebration of Marriage” is particularly timely and important. Like no other period in American and perhaps even world history, the concept of marriage as between only one man and one woman stands in the cross-hairs of a wayward culture and misguided government that have become increasingly hostile to its importance.

We would appreciate your donation.

We are delighted to have as our keynote speaker Brian Brown, co-founder and President of the National Organization for Marriage. Brown is widely regarded as one of the nation’s foremost advocates for preserving marriage and recognizing its importance to men, women, children, and to a society as a whole.

Brown will be joined on the program by perennial Valley favorite, Bishop E. W. Jackson. The evening will also include presentations of our annual Wilberforce and Daniel awards!

Both table and individual reservations are now available.
