Keynote Speaker: Leroy Petry
We have no doubt that we will sell out the luncheon quickly. You will want to be a part of this very special day! This year, we have an unbelievable keynote speaker this year. Army Ranger, First Sergeant, and Medal of Honor Recipient, Leroy Petry is a career United States Army soldier, now retired. He received the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions in Afghanistan in 2008 during Operation Enduring Freedom. His story is humbling and inspiring, to say the least! We will also host a Red-Carpet Party and film screening of “Hacksaw Ridge”, a film released in 2016 with an all-star cast, which echoes the attributes of heart, dedication, self-sacrifice, and bravery, as it illustrates the commitment of a Medal of Honor Recipient to save his fellow soldiers. The film screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Leroy Petry.
We truly appreciate our donors for making our Burn Survivor programs possible through their generous gifts.
