Elks Launch Campaign to Support Pearl Harbor
At the 2019 Elks National Convention in St. Louis PGER Mike Luhr issued a challeng to the Elks members to raise funds for the Pearl Harbor National Memorial in Hawaii. With contributions from Elks across the country, we can preserve, restore and modernize the USS Arizona Memorial.
The Elks are partnering with the Pacific Historical Parks, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public benefit organization that oversees the Pearl Harbor National Memorial.
Funds will be used to replace faded and peeling outdoor exhibits, build digital and interactive displays, modernize the museums with iPads and touch screens, and install new programs and software. Collectively, these funds will help the museum better educate and serve all museum visitors, help preserve history, perpetuate peace and reconciliation, and ensure that the memories of our veterans are never forgotten.
Our ultimate goal is $783,000 - or a dollar per member.
These contributions will help honor the service and dedication of Americans whose profound contributions to our nation should never be forgotten - so that generations to come will know and appreciate the enormous sacrifices of the Greatest Generation.
