2nd Annual “A Night With the Stars” First Responder Gala

2nd Annual “A Night With the Stars” First Responder Gala

Join us for an elegant evening of moving moments, philanthropy, and celebration at Survive First’s Second Annual “A Night with the Stars” First Responder Gala; an evening dedicated to honoring our Nation’s first responders while normalizing the conversation surrounding mental health and raising life-saving funds for our important causes. Our nation’s first responders give selflessly, each and every day, but many times with a cost. Each year, more first responders die by their own hand than any other line of duty death. Survive First is determined to change that statistic and we can do that with your support. Don’t miss this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our dedicated first responders. Your attendance will directly impact first responders across the country, as we raise funds for Survive First’s Treatment Assistance Fund, Canine Companions for First Responders Fund, and Resilience Retreats. For sponsorship opportunities, or further inquiries, please visit our website at www.survivefirst.us, or contact Karen Monda at karen@survivefirst.us. Follow us on social media to stay up to date on this impactful evening. We can be found on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Together, we can support the heroes who keep our communities safe. We look forward to seeing you there! Together we make a difference. Together we save lives.
