Long ago our heroes wore suits of armor and carried shields with a coat of arms. But today, the shields are the badges our Heroes In Blue put on their uniforms before reporting to work to protect and serve the public.
Be a part of Heroes in Blue’s second annual Knight of Honor Gala sponsored by the City of Forest Acres! The gala will take us back to medieval times for a themed celebration. A grand feast will feature a seasonally-selected and medieval-inspired three course meal. Beer and wine will be provided by Craft and Draft and Conquest Brewing Company. Lords and ladies from the Canton of Cyddlan Downs will provide entertainment throughout the evening. All courtiers are invited to dance to the sounds of Celtic rockstars, “Syr.”
The main event, special heroes in our community will be chosen to “be knighted” for their compassion and service to our community. Coach Frank Martin of the University of South Carolina Men’s Basketball Team will be our guest speaker for the evening. Click here to nominate your Knight of Honor! One outstanding officer will receive the “Officer Gregory Alia Award.” Alia was killed in the line of duty while responding to a call in Forest Acres on September 30th, 2015.
The evening brings the Heroes in Blue “Citizen Hero Award,” which is presented to an outstanding citizen or organization who through their efforts has made our community a better place.
This event is a must-attend for those who are passionate about pushing for positive change through united efforts. Proceeds raised from the event will support the work of Heroes In Blue promoting positive police and community relationships through empathy and action.
