Heroes Tribute Gala is when we gather in the presence of heroes with the families of heroes to remember and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
Whether you work in Public Safety, are the survivor of a fallen hero, or simply appreciate the service and sacrifice of heroes, you will not want to miss this event.
The formal program begins promptly at 6:00 PM (Central) with a very moving tribute to all fallen public safety heroes whose family members are present - including a special tribute to all who made the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty in Indiana, Kentucky and Missouri in 2022.
Dinner immediately follows.
Following dinner, the program will continue with speakers and presentations showcasing the activities of Supporting Heroes over the last year - including some who have been served or witnessed the organization serve firsthand. It will close with an uplifting candlelight ceremony sharing light and hope as we go forward.
