Hearts for Heroes Gala raises funds to renovate injured veterans’ homes

To continue on their mission to make life more comfortable for Canada’s ill and injured soldiers, Renos for Heroes will be hosting its seventh annual Hearts for Heroes Gala on Feb. 24.

“We’re pretty excited about this one. I know I am. It takes a lot of hard work for everybody to come together on this,” said Deryl Caruck, executive director of Renos for Heroes.

This year’s Gala will feature military speakers and presentations on those who have supported the organization over the years.

It will also feature a live and silent auction with items such as Sidney Crosby signed and framed jerseys, Maple Leaf player’s signed and framed jerseys, patio heaters, tools and much more.

Held on an annual basis since 2010, funds raised from the Hearts for Heroes Gala go towards projects that Renos for Heroes has lined up for this year. The organization’s projects include anything from redoing kitchens and floors to fencing, decks, and driveways.

Specifically, on the agenda for this year, Renos for Heroes plans to finish a deck for a soldier diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and is finishing a home renovation project for an injured solider in the Ottawa area.

Renos for Heroes handles all of the home renovation projects personally and keeps in touch with the veterans and Canadian military members and their families for years to come.

Aside from the Hearts for Heroes Gala, Renos for Heroes also holds an annual golf tournament to raise funds for their projects. This year’s golf tournament will be held on June 7 in Brampton, ON.
