Fundraising Events

The Virginia War Memorial Foundation hosts three major fundraising events every year to raise funds for and awareness of the work we do. In addition to our patriotic ceremonies and educational programs, these events provide much needed funding to the Memorial’s work and mission:

Memorial Day Weekend’s T.G.A 5K (They Gave All)

Memorial Day is the day we remember all who have died in service to our country. By commemorating this weekend of reflection with our annual 5K race, we encourage all participants to remember the service and sacrifice of these brave men and women.




Sips on the Skyline

September—the end of summer, the beginning of a new school field trip season, and Virginia Spirits Month. Join your fellow Memorial supporters, business and community leaders, and young professionals for an evening of cocktail and spirit tastings, food, music, veteran tributes, and a silent auction—not to mention the BEST view in the city of Richmond—all while supporting the work of the VWM and its Foundation.


Virginia War Memorial Golf Classic

What better way to spend a Monday than golfing to support the Virginia War Memorial and honor Virginia Veterans? Held annually in the fall at the scenic Independence Golf Club in Midlothian. The tournament kicks off with registration at 10:30 and a shotgun start at 12:45 pm. Players can sign up as single golfers or foursomes.
