Sarah Daly and Kristen Boyd, along with Maria Raber, are chairs of this year’s 2023 Heroes In Transition gala. The 14th gala’s theme is Legacy of Love and will be held on Friday, September 22nd at the Coonamessett Inn in Falmouth.
Heroes in Transition started in 2009, when Ken and Cyndy Jones lost their only son Captain Eric Jones in an Afghanistan helicopter crash. Since then, they continue to keep Eric’s legacy of service alive to active military members and veterans and their families through various programs that help develop a sense of community and resiliency for this population.
The programs that they offer fill the gap between what government and other agency programs don’t provide. They offer a veterans’ equine warrior program, families in transition, couple retreats, etc.
Tickets for the gala are available on their website. This year’s keynote speaker is Tim Whalen. John Terrio is the auctioneer. The live auction offers a Provincetown weekend, a weekend at the White Elephant on Nantucket, lobster boat cruise, Bruins opening night tickets, dining across Cape Cod, etc. The silent auction is open during cocktail hour and opens up for digital bids on September 15th.
100 raffle tickets will be sold for $100 each for a trip for two to Nashville at the Vanderbilt Hotel. It includes airfare, a tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame, and more.
