I truly believe that ever day should be filled with enthusiasm, meaning and purpose. These are the driving forces that propels us through life and gives meaning to our daily existence. I feel as though without these traits it would be nearly impossible to express our passions. Personal I would feel life as nothing but, simply a series of unconnected activities that do not lead to life altering goals, a sense of fulfillment and joy which is so vital to our well-being.

This evening I honestly couldn’t think of a better place to be than the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford celebrating and supporting The Dancing With Our Heroes Gala.

The goal is to build the first Connecticut Fisher House on the campus of the West Haven Veterans Hospital.

The Dancing With Our Heroes Gala pairs US Military Veterans from all branches of service (or the spouses of deployed veterans) with Professional Ballroom Dancers for a night of celebration on November 10th, 2013, at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT.

Heroes receive 25 lessons, along with costuming and tickets to the event, all free of charge, as thanks for their service. The fundraiser gala benefits the Friends of Fisher House CT – an organization that provides housing and more, free of charge, to families of veterans who are receiving care at VA Medical centers. The goal is to build the first Connecticut Fisher House on the campus of the West Haven Veterans Hospital.
