"The event is to help ensure America's Sons and Daughters, our Veterans, have every resource within their immediate reach," a spokesperson wrote in an email.   

The event is completely free. A light breakfast, coffee and drinks will be provided to attendees. Lunch will be provided by the Pan City Grill between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m.

In addition to legal, mental health and food benefits, nonprofits will help connect veterans and their families to benefits such as state and federal assistance as well as haircuts.
