Honor Our Veterans with Flowers at the 18th Annual Monument Anniversary Tribute on June 3

Monument AnniversaryOn Saturday, June 3, 2017, at 10 a.m., GFBNEC will hold its 18th Annual Monument Anniversary Tribute at the Go For Broke Monument located at 160 N. Central Avenue (Temple & Alameda Streets) in Los Angeles' Little Tokyo. Public parking is available in Lot 2 with entrance on Temple Avenue. The Monument Anniversary is a tribute to the Japanese American soldiers who served their country to prove their patriotism so that their families and future generations could live and work freely in the United States without fear of discrimination or racial prejudice.

We again are offering our supporters the opportunity to honor a veteran by purchasing a beautiful potted New Guinea Impatiens plant for $15.00 each. These plants will be placed around the Go For Broke Monument in honor of a veteran at our ceremony. Each purchased plant will include the name of the veteran being honored and the donor of the plant. At the conclusion of the ceremony, donors may pick up their potted plants.

Proceeds go toward the maintenance and upkeep of the Go For Broke Monument. Order deadline is Friday, May 19, 2017. Place your order today by contacting Peggy Renke at 310-222-5709 or email her at
