* Helping Heroes – As our 13th Annual Fisher House Gala originally scheduled for October 22,2020 goes on hiatus, support for our families will be through our #carecontinues. Created as a 90-day campaign to raise both awareness and resources for our families. Back to better buddy sponsorship opportunities are available and the good news, this event is Anywhere USA. Our goal is to make this last quarter, the best, one hopeful quarter for 2020.
Each year we are blessed with a sold-out event with 350 friends and fans of Fisher House attending so that we can keep families together for hope and healing and our 14th Annual is already scheduled for October 21, 2021.
