An event dedicated to veterans and their families that happened last month keeps giving to local heroes.
Funds raised from sponsorships for the second annual Heroes at Heartland event were split and donated to the Great River Honor Flight and the Tri-State Warriors. Each organization was presented $2,000.
Marcel Wagner, Heroes at Heartland Committee Member said, "That’s what this is all about. It’s about number 1, honoring those veterans that have served our country and a way to support them throughout the year, through the honor flight and the Tri-State Warrior outreach."
Heroes at Heartland organizers say about 246 veterans and their family were at the event in August
