Sinise Foundation trivia night scheduled for Aug. 7

A trivia night to benefit the Gary Sinise Foundation will be held on Saturday, Aug. 7 at Turner Hall in Columbia.

According to the foundation’s website,, “the Gary Sinise Foundation was established under the philanthropic direction of a forty-year advocate for our nation’s defenders, actor Gary Sinise. Each of the foundation’s programs originated from Gary’s personal relationships with our nation’s service community and a wide range of nonprofits he had supported for decades. Ever aware of the gaps of care these deserving heroes often encounter, he was inspired to serve them – always giving a little more.

“With the creation of the Gary Sinise Foundation, his crusade now supports all those who sacrifice on our behalf: active duty, veterans, first responders and their loved ones. Each program shows appreciation for America’s heroes through entertainment, family support and acts of gratitude.”
