Paul Bluto, Branson's IMAX Entertainment Complex owner, said
sponsoring Vets for Vets again is “our family's way of saying
'thank you.’” The “family” includes McFarlain’s Family and
Florentina's Ristorante Italiano.
Built Right Affordable Homes & Structures, a new Vets for Vets
co-sponsor, said its contribution is a way to thank the Branson
Veterans Task Force.
“The Branson Veterans Task Force is a tremendous asset to our
veterans and our community.” said Built Right sales manager Tom
Christian. “Thank you for doing all that you do.”
