The 7th Annual Honoring Our Heroes Gala
As of 2015, 7.5% of Michigan adults were military veterans. That number equates to almost 750,000 of our neighbors, friends, and family members. Many of our state’s Post 9-11 veterans face difficulties finding jobs or making ends meet due to service-related illnesses or injuries. These heroes who fought for freedom, liberty, and to maintain our American way of life face foreclosure, repossession, hunger, and even homelessness.
As advocates for meeting the basic needs of the citizens of Michigan, The Suburban Collection is proud to be a sponsor of the 7th Annual Honoring Our Heroes Gala, April 27th at the MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit. The event will support two incredibly important organizations: The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation works to build custom-designed and mortgage-free homes for veterans with catastrophic and life-altering injuries. Their organization sets itself apart from others as it continuously commits to providing houses that former service members can afford and maintain.
The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan (FWSF) also works to ease the financial burden that many wounded soldiers come home to. Responding to inquiries within 36 hours, the FWSF secures funds to cover a veteran’s bills within one week. Their board members are volunteers who run the organization from their homes.
Our veterans deserve support and praise for their bravery but, more importantly, they deserve to have their basic needs met upon returning to the home they fought for. For more information on the Honoring Our Heroes Gala, visit MotorCityCasino.com.
