'Heroes of Hope' a Heroic Success

Thanks to all those who helped make Lutheran Services of Georgia's annual Heroes of Hope, Healing and Strength gala on Thursday night one for the record books. More than 130 guests came out to to the 755 Club at Turner Field to help celebrate our honorees: Kay Trendell, Jean and Betty Mori, and the Georgia Association of Homes and Services for Children.

With WSB-TV news anchor John Bachman serving as master of ceremonies, the night included a silent auction, tours of Turner Field, heartwarming speeches from the honorees, and videos celebrating their work and achievements. Especially poignant was the speech from honoree Kay Trendell, who, after nearly 30 years of service to LSG's Refugee Services department, will be retiring in September. Thanks largely to Kay's work and dedication, Refugee Services is celebrating 30 years of success this year, which was also honored at Heroes of Hope. With your continued support, there's no doubt that many more years of success are in LSG's future.
