Go behind the scenes with Hello Woodlands and take a tour of the event:
The event was the organization’s annual fundraising celebration, where funds raised go to the invaluable peer-to-peer counseling services to First Responders in need. The keynote speaker for the event was Canadian firefighter/paramedic Kevin Davison, who is a singer/songwriter internationally recognized for his music video of “When Those Sirens Have Gone,” a tribute to First Responders who have encountered the effects of post-traumatic stress.
The black-tie-optional event included dinner, the keynote address, live entertainment, silent auction, live auction, and raffle.
