Patriot Day

Memorial Breakfast Event

september 11, 2016

The Historical Coliseum, 535 Fourth Avenue North, St. Petersburg, FL

On September 11, 2016, over 600 community members, leaders and heroes came together in remembrance of those individuals lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. 15 years has passed since that day, and on this, RHS’ 5th Annual Patriot’s Day Memorial Event, we gathered not just to remember and honor those who gave all, but to support organizations that are making a difference to injured first responders and military members, and families of the fallen. We are thankful to our incredible speakers from the community, and to our guest speaker, Rear Admiral Sonny Masso, who shared his first-hand experience of being at the Pentagon on 9/11. We thank our event sponsors, and each business and individual who sponsored a Hero table, purchased a ticket, and donated to the cause. Your generosity helped us fill the the St. Petersburg Coliseum and to raise over $100,000 for our three beneficiaries: Paws for Patriots, Special Operation Warrior Foundation, and the Gold Shield Foundation.

Three Star Sponsor: Schmidt Investors of South Florida
