Heroes Day Set to Honor Local First Responders on May 5

Come out and support your local Heroes at our 5th Annual Heroes Day Event on May 5th from 9am-3pm at Tractor Supply in Jefferson City, TN. Heroes Day is a way for our community to say Thank You to our first responders and a great family friendly event with multiple interests for adults, children and everyone in between. We will be serving a BBQ Plate, Hot Dog Plate lunch, and have multiple raffles thanks to generous donations from many local businesses.

Included in the raffle is our largest yet, which is a 7 night stay in a 1 Bedroom Deluxe Villa at Westgate Resort in Gatlinburg, TN. The Dates of the stay are June 9th-16th, 2018. This is a $1,200 value! Tickets are $20 each and only 150 will be sold. You can purchase them in advance at Ruff N Fluff in Dandridge during business hours or at the event, all proceeds will benefit the Heroes Fund which helps our local heroes when they are in need, such as a serious injury or illness. Last year the recipient of the donations was Trevor Jones, who is a Jefferson County Police Officer who was battling cancer.

This year will be our largest event yet! Our main events include Wings Air Rescue landing at 10am and taking off at 11am, Lifestar landing at 12pm and taking off at 1pm, Jefferson City PD to do a K-9 Demonstration, THP with the rollover simulator vehicle, and West Hamblen Fire Department with the Smokehouse Simulator as our main events. We will also have multiple area Fire Departments, Police Departments, EMS, Rescue Squad, & more!

This event is open to all, and is a great event for all ages. So please stop by, say thank you, and show support to your local first responders! All first responders attending the event will be provided breakfast and lunch free of charge thanks to our wonderful community donations.

If you would like to donate any items (for the lunch or breakfast we will provide for the first responders), items to Raffle to help raise money, purchase an event shirt, or would just like to help out in general, please contact Jennifer @ 865-640-3387 or jenniferleeannpoe@iCloud.com.
