Upcoming Events

What better way to plug into and connect with the important work of PVA than by attending one of our many events?

Upcoming Event Calendar

Perhaps you would like to attend the annual PVA Gala (formerly the Mission ABLE Awards), our premier friend-and-fund raising event that gathers together leaders from show business, government and business. If motor sports are more your passion then how about go karting with the "King" Richard Petty at the annual Kings Cup event. Or score a hole-in-one for America's veterans with disabilities by participating in our annual Paralyzed Veterans Golf Open. Other sports events like the Bass Tour, National Trapshoot Circuit and the National Veterans Wheelchair Games, just to name a few, bring together the best of rehabilitation, camaraderie and competition.

Whatever event(s) you choose, you will be educated, informed, entertained and inspired!
