Gala Salutes Children & Their First Responder or Medical Military Heroes at Home

On Saturday, Nov. 6, 2021, children and their first responder or medical military member heroes donned their very best dresses, suits, and uniforms for an evening of music, dancing, games and delicious food, all for free, at The Cohen Clinic at Centerstone Children’s Gala for Heroes Homecoming Week at Huske Hardware in Fayetteville.

To begin the evening, Terry Sanford High School ROTC posted the colors. Shortly after, Fayetteville State University cheerleaders got the party started by joining attendees on the dance floor for a limbo contest and dancing.

Newly elected Mayor Kia Anthony of Spring Lake, N.C. offered remarks as the evening’s special guest. Even the Fayetteville Woodpeckers mascot joined in the fun! Attendees also enjoyed crafts, musical chairs, a glow party, photo booth, great food and toe-tapping music!

The gala took place as part of a week-long series of community celebrations leading up to Veterans Day. It was also a special way to recognize children from the community and demonstrate our gratitude to local first responders and medical military members.
