Patriot Week (white logo with shadow)

Memorial Dinner

The Annual Memorial Dinner serves as our primary fundraiser and most dynamic display of our programs. Highly distinguished guests, Gold Star Families, Service members, and community supporters gather to Honor the Fallen and hear the stories of those impacted by the service of Mass Fallen Heroes. The inspirational and motivational event captures the essence of community and memorializes the 301 Massachusetts service members lost since September 11, 2001.

“We are here because we are supposed to be here. Because we owe it to them; we swore we would never forget. We have a creed that says we will leave no man behind. If we did not take the time to HONOR them, we would be leaving them behind. If we did not work to SUPPORT the Gold Star Families, we would be leaving them behind. If we did not work hard to EMPOWER the Veterans that served alongside them, we would be leaving them behind.”
