About Hornets Yellow Ribbon Program
In partnership with Bank of America, the Hornets honor a veteran during one Hornets home game each month for his or her unwavering service to our country. Recipients are recognized prior to the national anthem, and during an on-court presentation at halftime, and are given tickets to the game. In addition, the Hornets donate $1,000 to the recipient’s charity of choice.

Nominations may be submitted by anyone, at any time, during the year. Self-nominations are welcomed.
