What was the Summer Soirée?

  • From 2010 to 2019, Hope For The Warriors has hosted an annual Got Heart, Give Hope Gala to commemorate our service members, veterans, their families, corporate partners and strategic alliances. In response to the pandemic, this event was adapted into the Summer Soiree as a part of the annual Celebrity Invitational at River Landing. 
  • We are eternally grateful to River Landing and Murphy Family Ventures for hosting this event for the last 2 years. Without their support, we wouldn’t have been able to continue the tradition of honoring these outstanding examples of selfless acts of service. 
  • In the fall of 2023, HOPE will relocate this Awards Ceremony to its own event in the Washington, D.C. area. The Summer Soiree will no longer be a part of the Invitational weekend, making the event two-days only.
