The Fitzpatrick Farewell

Saturday January 20 – Dinner & Gala

Join us for an evening of dinner, dancing and fun at The Hotel Roanoke as we celebrate Saturday, January 20, from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. We are excited to honor Bev Fitzpatrick’s legacy of a lifetime of service to this region.

From a Patrick Henry High School student cutting class to attend Virginia Museum of Transportation Board Meetings, to being our region’s ambassador, and everything in between. Bev has diligently served, always putting others before himself. The night includes a chance to gather with friends, reminisce through the years, and help sustain Bev’s legacy at the Virginia Museum of Transportation. We’ll have a photo booth, silent and live auctions and music throughout the evening. Capacity is limited so please purchase tickets now.

Buy a table for $800 and receive dinner for eight and eight drink tickets. Individual tickets are available for $100 and include dinner only. A cash bar will be available. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Virginia Museum of Transportation.
