16th Annual Helping Heroes Gala–Fort Walton Beach, Florida

October 5 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


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.

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 and perhaps unseating 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.  Occupancy 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.

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.
