On March 5, 2016, TIP of NW Florida will host a gala event—our 2016 Heroes with Heart! It will be held at the Pensacola Yacht Club at 1897 Cypress Street in Pensacola, and will begin at 5:30 p.m. The event will include dinner and awards, and a silent auction and raffle—the proceeds of which will be used as a means for raising funds for our local two-county TIP Chapter. One hundred percent of these funds go to the organization and provide support for our victims. We have no paid staff in TIP of NW Florida and are completely donation funded.
We would like to express special thanks to our Heroes with Heart Event Sponsors!
Trauma Intervention Program (TIP) of NW Florida is a group of specially trained volunteers who are called by emergency responders to provide immediate, on-scene emotional and organizational support to any victim of a traumatic event. We are a 501c3 organization and this is our 4th annual Heroes with Heart event! This event recognizes law enforcement officers, firefighters, hospital personnel, and other first responders nominated by our volunteers for going above and beyond the call of duty in 2015. Recipients of the Heroes with Heart Awards are unsung heroes who, at this event, are given the public recognition they deserve in front of fellow responders, families, and supporters from throughout our community. We are proud to announce that we will recognize 7 first responders from our 2 county area of Escambia and Santa Rosa. Thank you to our Heroes Recipients and to all our brave first responders that do an outstanding job and impact our community in a positive way every day!
