Bennett International Group, LLC hosted the Second Annual Wreaths of Honor Ride on Thursday, September 12, in conjunction with Driver Appreciation Day events. The escorted motorcycle procession started at the Atlanta Motor Speedway and went through Henry County, Georgia to raise awareness for Wreaths Across America. The convoy included 7 custom-wrapped tractor trailers honoring armed forces, first responders, the Heritage Park Museum and Wreaths Across America.
“Wreaths Across America aligns with Bennett’s Patriotism core value,” said Lee Gentry, Executive Vice President of Bennett International Group. “We have strong roots in the military with our employees, drivers and customers. Honoring our fallen heroes is a passion of mine, and for so many of our employees who have lost loved ones or choose to honor the sacrifice others have made for our freedom.”
Bennett’s goal this year is to raise enough money to cover 15,000 of the 20,200 graves at Andersonville National Cemetery. To learn more about Wreaths Across America or to sponsor a wreath, visit here.
