WI First Lady, veterans secretary to host ball


MADISON (WKOW) -- Several officials in Wisconsin will come together to honor our veterans in Wisconsin. A Veterans Ball is set for Saturday, March 2, 2013. Wisconsin First Lady Tonette Walker and state Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary John Scocos are slated to host the dance to benefit the state veterans museum.

"Faces of Freedom -- A Year of the Veteran Celebration" will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Milwaukee. The event will include a reception hosted by Walker, a program saluting veterans, a performance by Milwaukee comedian Fred Klett, live music and dancing. Museum employees also will be on hand to record veterans' tales.

The event is open to the public. Tickets will cost $50 per person. Walker's husband, Governor Scott Walker, declared 2012 the year of the veteran.
