Our 16th annual Helping Heroes Gala is scheduled for October 5 at the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Convention Center where we will gather together in one big room in Come as You Are dress for the evening.
Our home on Eglin continues blessing military and veteran families and this annual event, the one we host individually, is a big part of the blessing. With the Intrepid Spirit Center entering full operation this January, we are mindful that demand for our house on Eglin will only increase; we need to be prepared and can only do it with you.
Ways to help include sponsorships, silent and live auctions, by purchasing tickets and joining us for a light-hearted evening of inspiration messages and fellowship with other Fisher House fans who have become family. AmFund will be with us offering bucket list vacations.
The evening will begin at 5:00 pm with a social, silent auction – great networking and visiting with friends and making new ones followed by a program at 6:30 pm with seating for up to 500. Dinner will be served and guests will be treated with words of inspiration by Sean Dietrich.
Review about Sean by Brad Webb: “I first came to know Sean Dietrich through music; he is one heck of a musician — and this descriptor is entirely insufficient. He’s so much more…humorist, writer, “podcaster”, etc. But what Sean is, essentially, is one of those great American “Relators” like Will Rogers or Lewis Grizzard. His ability to observe and then express life around us is pure and simply…art. Enjoy!”
Creative, fun and memorable approaches are ALWAYS included with the marketing of this must-attend event. Sponsors and military can compete for the honor of Fisher House’s biggest fan by bringing the biggest team unseating, perhaps the 2021 Biggest Fan, Better Homes and Garden, Emerald Coast. (only) 500 seats are available, and will sell out. Supporting this event says thank you in a very tangible way to our military and veteran families who stay with us for hope and healing. Occupany numbers remain high at our Fisher House on Eglin and when our house is at capacity, we place families in partner hotels. Join us to ensure there is always room in our inn. Individual tickets are $150.00.
Our fundraising goal for the evening is $100,000 and will go to support the structure of the house, internally and externally and to provide hospitality and hope for the families staying with us. Your help is greatly appreciated.
