Ron White Comedy Series
Since 2008 the Armed Forces Foundation has partnered with stand-up comedian Ron White for an annual comedy show at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC. Ron White, a Navy veteran himself, brings his routine of laughter and storytelling to an audience of paying supporters and wounded service members.
This past year’s show, held in March of 2010, raised over $150,000 in funds for the AFF. More personally, Ron White and crew took an entire day out of their busy schedule to host a barbecue for wounded troops at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center where Ron and crew spent the afternoon mingling with the troops and their families.
Though the past few years proved a success for Ron and the AFF, this year he and the folks at Country Music Television decided to kick things up a notch and take the show on the road to Country Music’s greatest shrine, the Grand Ole Opry House. On February 15, 2011, Ron White will host a Celebrity Salute to the Troops with musical guests Rascal Flatts and other to-be-announced performers. The evening features some very special guests, 500 of our closest friends from Fort Campbell Kentucky. Ron has invited Active Duty Service members, the Spouses of Deployed Soldiers and Surviving Spouses, from the base, to come in for a night of music, laughter and special recognition.
