The City of Fontana has partnered with its Veterans groups to create the Miller Park Amphitheater Veterans Memorial. You can help honor past and present Veterans by making the Miller Park Amphitheater Veterans Memorial a reality.

We are asking our community to unite in support of Fontana Veterans by submitting a donation to provide a permanent tribute to our heroes. View the brochure with additional information about the monument and the many generous opportunities available for support.
