In 2010, Hope For The Warriors® established their annual Gala to commemorate our combat wounded service members, veterans, their families, and the families of the fallen. This Gala was to focus on the hope these men and women inspire through their remarkable stories of recovery and achievement. Now, in our seventh annual Got Heart Give Hope® Gala and Hope & Courage Awards, we continue the tradition of honoring outstanding examples of selfless acts of service.



Got Heart, Give Hope Logo
That same inaugural year, STUDIOetc generously donated their time to create the beautiful Got Heart Give Hope® logo. STUDIOetc brilliantly illustrates the Hope For The Warriors mission and depicts our dedication to the individual, the family, and the community – also portraying Purple Heart recipients and wounded service members. It incorporates the ribbon, a traditional symbol of support, and the heart, which evokes the Got Heart Give Hope theme for the evening.



Over the years there have been many Hope & Courage Award recipients, to learn more about them and their stories visit our Award Honorees page.

John Phelps, professional sculptor from Dubois, WY and father of LCpl Chance Phelps, USMC KIA, Iraq, created these awards for the Got Heart, Give Hope Gala. John Phelps is a longtime supporter of Hope For The Warriors, an Ambassador of Hope for the organization, and works within the Outdoor Adventures Program. We would like to thank John Phelps for his dedication and eager willingness to support Hope For The Warriors. For more information about John Phelps, visit www.johnphelps.com.

The art therapy session at the Caregiver Workshop encouraged me to focus on being good enough, not perfect, for my kids, my husband—and myself. That’s a huge stress reliever! Going to all three workshops helped me reinforce the habit of taking care of myself and sharing what I’ve learned with other caregivers.
