Local contributors, political leaders and members of the Fisher House Foundation are expected to attend. Ken Fisher, Chairman, Fisher House Foundation, will be the keynote speaker.

The 21 bedroom Fisher House will take approximately 18 months to complete at a cost of over $5 million. It will serve as a "home away from home" for veteran and active duty families while their loved ones are being treated at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center.
