Support Our Heroes Gala Program 2013
Saturday, September 28, 2013 Waterâ€™s Edge Events Center 4687 Millennium Drive Belcamp, MD ABOUT THE FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION The Fisher House program is a unique and private-public partnership that supports America’s military families in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardship of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans affairs. Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates “comfort homes” which are built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful time – during the hospitalization for a combat illness, disease, or injury. There is at least one Fisher House at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House program serves more than 19,000 families. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is no fee to stay in a Fisher House. Since 1990, the foundation has saved military, veterans and their families an estimated $200 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.

Welcome to the 9th Annual Support Our Heroes Gala! On behalf of the Chesapeake Support Our Heroes Nonprofit Organization (CSOH), I’d like to sincerely thank you for joining us this evening. In February, 2012, the CSOH proudly joined an already-established community of organizations that selected the Fisher House Foundation as a cause through which we could support American soldiers and their families over the past ten years. We are pleased to have achieved a 501(c)(3) status as a public charity by the IRS in August, 2013, allowing donations to CSOH to be considered tax deductible. Our mission is simple: demonstrate our commitment and provide care to our wounded service members and their families by supporting the Fisher House Foundation. The entire organizational community has raised more than $1.5 million over the past eight years. Tonight’s gala is our largest annual fundraiser and we hope that you’ll help us to make it our most successful event yet! Please speak to our committee members, participate in tonight’s traditional and silent auctions, and consider donating your time, talent or treasure. Take a look at how you can personally make a difference and consider becoming a “heart corps” volunteer. Any of our committee members will be happy to mentor and assist you in your fundraising efforts for the Fisher House Foundation. There are so many untapped ways to assist -- whether it be a 5K run, a girl or boy scout project, or a concert in the park.You can be an important part of our grassroots activities to help our patriotic, selfless American heroes who now need assistance. Some of this year’s fundraisers included the Eatontown Lions Club, the AAAA Lakewood Blueclaws Outing, and the West Point Society of NJ which cumulatively raised more than $40,000 for the Fisher House Foundation. Hooah! Thanks again to each and every one of you for joining us tonight and for supporting our nation’s wounded heroes and their families. I especially want to thank our corporate, military and government supporters as well as our very special volunteers. The effort they put into making this event a success is truly “from the heart.” So to them I extend our most heartfelt thanks. Enjoy this evening’s festivities!

It is deliberately placed before our nation’s colors as a special place of honor. … symbolizes the presence of their loving spirit; they will never be forgotten. … is set and reserved for one to honor each of our missing and fallen loved ones. … is round to represent the everlasting concern for those missing and fallen comrades. The white tablecloth … symbolizes the purity of our heroes’ intention to respond to their country’s call to arms. The single red rose … reminds us of the life and love of each hero and the sacrifices that they made for this country. The yellow ribbon ... tied so prominently on the vase, symbolizes remembrance for the families and loved ones who keep the memories of our brothers and sisters alive. 10 The solitary candle … stands proud, straight, and tall … just like our comrades and symbolizes the ultimate sacrifice that our fallen comrades and their families have made to preserve our precious freedom. The slice of lemon on the plate … reminds us of their bitter fate. The salt upon the table … symbolizes the tears shed by families as they have endured the sorrow of their loved ones’ fate. The inverted glass … symbolizes that our heroes are with us in spirit but cannot raise a glass to toast with us tonight. The chair … leans forward against the table and represents a reserved space for each of our heroes. Please take a moment this evening to remember these brave men and women who have made “the ultimate sacrifice.” We also ask that you keep their families and loved ones in mind tonight as we continue our cause to support the Fisher House Foundation’s mission to pro!"#$%&%'('%)*+*%),-./0*123%4-5+/% vide a “home away from home” for military families so that they can be near their loved ones during hospitalizations for illness, disease, or injury.

After 19 years in Virginia, where John was resident artist at the William King Regional Art Center in Abingdon,Virginia, he moved back to Harford County. John can be seen “when the light is right” just about anywhere there is a view. His credo? “Observe nature and be honest in your presentation.” Linnea Tober Linnea is a “colorist” at heart and thrives when playing with color in her abstract works. Her photography focuses mainly on nature….the intricate textures, shapes and shadows she creates on her own. Linnea shoots images, always thinking of what it can “become”. She then twists and tweaks them to make them her own “nature photographic abstractions”. Sometimes you can see the original image and sometimes not…it all depends on where the muse takes her.
