About Event

Agenda Overview

Continuum Veterans Foundation 2nd Annual Gala & Fundraiser

Throughout our history, Americans have come together and proudly supported our brave young men and women while they serve our country. There are untold stories about the plight of veterans who come home ready to rejoin society, but are faced with enormous challenges. Because of the great sacrifice of our U.S. military, the Continuum Veterans Foundation is dedicated to helping returning troops find jobs in the IT industry. Thanks to organizations like Hire Heroes USA, an organization dedicated to creating job opportunities for U.S. military veterans and their spouses, many are helping to make civilian job opportunities a reality.

Continuum Veterans Foundation will be hosting a Gala to benefit Hire Heroes, USA. The Gala is scheduled for September 13, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM. The Gala will be held at the Historic Edgeworth Club in Sewickley PA.
