Amongst the glamour, a wonderful evening was had by all to ensure a future for gold star children. Last night, Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation’s 7th Annual Greenwich Gala brought together active duty heroes, military family members and people from all walks of life who were compelled to support Fallen Patriot’s mission.
Participation from loyal supporters made the evening a remarkable success, as generosity flowed throughout the Gala. We officially raised $2,000,000! Without the humble offerings from partners, the event and continued support for Fallen Patriots wouldn’t be possible.
It is our sincere hope that the mission of Children of Fallen Patriots, to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty, will continue to be shared.
In addition to the money raised last night, we want to extend our deep thanks once again to our partner, the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund, for their donation of $1,000,000 in June, to cover the costs of more than 60 students! They, and our Junior Board, who hosted the first ever New York City based “Junior” Gala, and exposed a younger generation to a relevant and worthy military cause, are prime examples of the incredible support we receive.
On behalf of the Fallen Patriots team, and the thousands of military children whose lives are transformed by others generosity, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
