Patriot Day

Memorial Breakfast Event

October 20, 2017

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

Florida rose strong October 20, 2017. Having been postponed thanks to Hurricane Irma, some 400 community, military and civic leaders communed to honor, remember and support our military heroes, first responders and their families.

We are thankful to our incredible speakers and heroes, and to the generosity of so many of our attendees and sponsors. You truly are making a huge difference in the lives of local beneficiaries.

Due to the rescheduling of the event following Hurricane Irma, our original guest speaker, Vice Admiral Sean A. Pybus regretted that he was unable to attend. We were honored to welcome General Votel, Commander of USCENTCOM, who gave an incredible speech as our guest speaker for the 2017 Patriot Day Memorial Event.

This year’s event was special for many reasons. We are honored to announce that Jo Brower received the Distinguished Public Service Award, presented by General Votel. It was a great honor and moving moment.

This year, our beneficiaries include Gold Shield Foundation, Warrior to Warrior, and Stay in Step.

Three Star Sponsor: Great Bay Distributors

The 2017 program guide features letters of support from community leaders and military members, details of the many generous companies and individuals whose support make the annual event and crucial work of our beneficiaries possible.
