Got Heart Give Hope® Gala

The Hope For The Warriors® Got Heart Give Hope Gala® is an intimate, Black-Tie event honoring service members and their families and their remarkable stories of recovery and achievement.

On 27 September 2017, Hope For The Warriors will host the Eighth Annual Got Heart Give Hope Gala at The Army Navy Club in Arlington, VA.

These military heroes embody the essence of self, family and Hope.

The mission of Hope For The Warriors is to enhance quality of life for United States service members and their families, nationwide, who have been adversely affected by injuries or death in the line of duty. Hope For The Warriors actively seeks to ensure that the sacrifices of wounded service members, and fallen warriors and their families are never forgotten nor their needs unmet. To accomplish this mission, we have special programs and events, including the Got Heart Give Hope Gala. We invite you to join us as you won’t want to miss this memorable evening.
