“The 2020 EOD Weekend marks the 51st EOD Memorial Ceremony and the 52nd Annual EOD Ball.
Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus / COVID-19, the EOD Memorial Ceremony is closed to the public and currently limited to essential personnel only. The current 341 heroes whose names are listed on the EOD Memorial Wall will be honored as our tradition and promise stands true; We will Remember.” (From eodwarriorfoundation.org)
Through virtual attendance, the weekend events begin on May 1 with the Annual EOD Auction. The Auction will be entirely online with bidding opening at 11:00 AM CST, and continue for 24 hours.
Friday evening, 8:00 pm CST, a much anticipated raffle of the Orange County Chopper’s EOD Bike will be live-streamed on social media! Purchase a ticket to win this one-of-a-kind chopper, head over to www.eodbike.com to get your ticket!
Saturday morning at 9:00 am CST as we honor our Fallen EOD Technicians at the closed Memorial Ceremony.
At 5:00 pm CST on May 2nd, Point One joins the EOD Community as we collectively raise our glasses and toast the lives of our fallen. We will virtually come together and pledge to remember their service and sacrifice, and will commence in celebrating their lives. We can all participate in this celebration together, near or far!
