Every day, men and women wake up, put on a uniform, and prepare themselves for the day knowing that it may be their last. The First Responders of the community–Police, Fire Fighters, Peace Officers–are ready to serve selflessly, and give the ultimate sacrifice for the safety of others, should it be necessary.
The Bryan Evening Lions, the Bryan Noon Lions, and the College Station Noon Lions join The 100 Club on February 28 at the Brazos Expo Center to honor those who risk their lives daily for the community with their third annual “Honoring Our Heroes” Dinner and Music Show. This year will feature the musical accompaniment of Asleep at the Wheel, a Western swing group. Dinner will be provided by Texas Roadhouse.
Brazos County liaison for The 100 Club, Ron Gay, described the event as an “opportunity to say thank you to…the folks who put their lives on the line.” The funds collected by The 100 Club help to provide for the families of those killed in the line of duty by “taking care of mortgages, car payments, student loans, and scholarships,” says Gay.
Individuals may reserve a place at the dinner for $50, while sponsors may reserve a table for four company representatives and four honorees for $800. Sponsors may also make reservations for First Responders for $250, which does not include reservations for the sponsor. The deadline to register is February 21. The proceeds will benefit the Brazos Lions Clubs Foundation and The 100 Club.
