Charleston, SC, February 21, 2019 – Hunt Heroes Foundation (HHF), the non-profit organization founded by Hunt Military Communities ("HMC"), is excited to announce it raised more than $85,000 at its first-ever Hunt Heroes Foundation gala. The event, recently held in Charleston, SC, included dinner, a silent auction, and an awards ceremony.
"I am completely blown away by the generosity of our supporters," stated John Ehle, HMC President. "Their generous donations will allow the foundation to offer more help and assistance to organizations that directly impact military members and their families."
HHF received donations from the following companies as part of the gala:
• Davey Landscaping
• Total Landscape Corporation
• HD Supply
• RealtyCom Partners
• GE Appliance
• Sherwin Williams
• Engineered Floors
• ID Environmental
• Tidewater USA
• Bravo Services
In addition, HMC employees raise more than $8,000 through the silent auction and raffle. Many of the auction items were also donated by employees. As a commitment to our partnership, 10% of all donations received at the gala were directly given back to Stop Soldier Suicide, the first national, veteran-founded-and-led 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on military suicide prevention. In addition to Stop Soldier Suicide, money raised will continue to support wear blue: run to remember as well as the new scholarship program recently launched by HHF.
"When we first began the Hunt Heroes Foundation our goal was that we would give back to organizations that directly support military members and their families and the communities where they live and work," continued Ehle. "We were optimistic that year after year we would grow and be able to give back more and more. In just one year, we have done just that. We are looking forward to what this year brings."
