Hope For The Warriors’ success — providing over 12,000 services to the warrior community each year — is not possible without our volunteers and partners in mission. For the first time this year, in celebration of our 10th gala and embracing the spirit of John Vigiano’s legacy, we’ve introduced the following awards to highlight individuals, corporations and organizations who have stood beside us since the early days and continue to stand with us. Just like John Vigiano, each of these recipients understand serving our country’s veteran and military population is a community commitment. It’s a constant reminder of a resilient spirit who rose above unthinkable tragedy with a simple goal of helping others.
