KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Trace Adkins will not be able to attend a masquerade ball supporting wounded veterans, but the event will continue in his absence.
The Celebrity Charity Black Tie Masquerade Ball is Sunday, November 22, 2015 at Bridgewater Place. This event is between Veterans Day and Thanksgiving and is appropriately titled “In The Spirit of Thanksgiving.”
Black tie, gowns, masks and tuxedos or military dress are the dress code for the ball, which includes a sit down dinner, live celebrity entertainment and surprise guests throughout the evening.
“This is going to be a night to remember as we honor the men and women of our military and all that they have given us and continue to give us,” said organizers of the event in a statement. “This is a time for all of Knoxville to come together as one and to honor those who have honored us for so long.”
Adkins will provide a special video message to be viewed at the event.
Money raised from the ball will support programs of the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that serves hundreds of wounded heroes and their families throughout Tennessee.
