Survive First’s 2nd Annual “A Night With the Stars” First Responder Gala Is a Wrap!

WHAT A NIGHT! On April 6, we hosted our 2nd Annual “A Night With the Stars” First Responder Gala and it was nothing short of amazing!  Guests came together from around the country to honor our first responders, spread awareness, and normalize the conversation surrounding mental health in the first responder community.
From the exciting live auction, led by our amazing auctioneer, retired sheriff Jim Voutour to the powerful stories of our guest speakers, the night reminded us of the impact we can make together and that no matter the challenges we face, we can find the strength through the many people who support us. The generosity of all who attended and supported the event will have a lasting impact on the first reaponders we serve.  A huge thank you to our sponsors, for making this night possible:
Acadia Healthcare
Lawmen’s and Shooters Supply
Advent Health
Chateau Recovery
To Orange County Sheriff, John Mina, and Orlando Police Department Chief of Police, Eric Smith, thank you for having us in The City Beautiful and for your inspiring words you spoke for our guests. To our guest speakers, Nicole Ferry and Woodrow Riggs, your powerful messages resonated with all in the room, and will serve as a reminder to all that having a tough conversation can save a life.
Most importantly, to each of our guests…
Your presence and love was felt. Thank you for being a part of such a special night!  Here’s to many more unforgettable nights like this, where we come together to make a difference for this ever important cause. Stayed tuned in the coming weeks for the announcement of the 2025 3rd Annual A Night With the Stars Gala!
Together we make a difference.  Together we save lives.
Together we make a difference. Together we save lives.
