Vets Week Us Upon Us!!!

Check out all the different events in Aurora, IL and show your support for our Veterans and their families. Vets Week Aurora is the time we, the Aurora Veterans Advisory Council, raise funds to help our Vets and their families, as well as an AVAC scholarship.  You’ll have to purchase tickets at some events (see specific events for more info) but a majority are free! Donations will be accepted at each event. The more we raise the more we can give back to our youth and our Veterans!

Let’s make this year’s Vets Week one for the history books!!
