About Our Annual Gala

Heroes for Healthcare Gala 2022 enjoyed an evening of food, drink, music, silent auction, stories, and awards as we honor those who made an impact for our veterans and community.

This year, we had the pleasure host the Marquette ROTC Color Guard, present Challenge Coins for our Honorees and raised over $38,000 to help fund for Wis-MAC and continue offering direct service at no cost to transitioning soldiers and veterans.

 

 

Our goal is to raise $100,000 to cover Wis-MAC expenses such as travel to military bases and provide financial support for items not covered by the G.I. Bill such as books, laptops, scrubs and shoes, educational placement tests, and state licensing fees.

 

Our 3rd Annual Gala event starts at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 28, 2023 at the Brookfield Conference Center in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Attire for the evening is semi-formal/after five.
