The fourth annual Evening of Tribute in Denver transformed the XJET Centennial Airport hangar into an upscale dining experience to pay tribute to military men and women and benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. Some of the major highlights of this August evening included entertainment, a silent auction and a military paratrooper jumping out of an airplane alongside a military working dog followed by a canine demonstration. Evening of Tribute was hosted by Jon Scott, FOX News co-anchor of Happening Now, and featured guest speaker Amy Purdy, 2014 Paralympic bronze medalist in Sochi and Season 18 Finalist on Dancing with the Stars. The event was created by retired SEALS and has raised $800,000 for the foundation prior to the event this year.
