In support of Fisher House, a "home away from home" for military families to be close to their loved ones during unexpected illness, injury or disease, Jessica St. Clair Studio, LLC is donating "Chesapeake Beacon" to the 10th Annual Chesapeake Support Our Heroes Gala.
As a military wife, I understand the incredible sacrifices our soldiers and their families make, and support the mission of Fisher House. Every major military medical center has at least one Fisher House, which serves as a comfort home that enables families to be close to their loved ones while hospitalized without fee for lodging and transportation. Fisher House also provides scholarships to military children and operates the Hero Miles program, which uses donated airline reward miles to provide tickets to military families to fly to the bedside of their ill or injured soldiers.
Funds raised at the Chesapeake Support Our Heroes Gala this year will be donated to Fisher House in honor of MG Harold ("Harry") Greene. August 5, 2014 MG Greene was tragically killed by hostile action in the War in Iraq. He was an integral part of Army organizations both my husband and I worked for, and a deeply respected and admired leader.
