Fall Fest 2017 – T&E Care Salutes
Everyday Heroes

The 2017 Fall Fest will be held on Saturday, November 11, from 6:30 to 11:00pm at St. Davids Golf Club in Wayne, PA. This year we will be saluting local heroes. What a wonderful way to honor all those from the community who do so much, including our veterans (as Nov. 11 is Veteran’s Day). As in the past, the Fall Fest is our largest fundraiser, so the support of the community is greatly needed. We will be looking for sponsors, prize donors, and anyone else willing to lend a hand. We are extremely grateful to Zeke Capital Advisors for being our lead sponsor again this year.  What incredible local generosity!  Please contact us at fallfest@tecare.org if you would like to get involved in any way.

We are excited to say that our band this year will be Dibbs Preston and the Detonators!  Check out their tunes.  We think they will fit into our casual hero theme very well!  Dress is cocktail casual – nice jeans are even fine!

Who Is Your Everyday Hero?

In honor of Veteran’s Day, we will be recognizing and celebrating Everyday Heroes at this year’s event.  Everyday Heroes are those individuals or groups who, through their past or ongoing actions and leadership, make positive contributions to the lives of all those in the greater Tredyffrin and Easttown communities. The purpose of our celebration is to demonstrate the wide array of people and groups responsible for making our community such a special place.
We are asking for your help in identifying Everyday Heroes in our community. These heroes will be included in materials presented at the Fall Fest, but will not be called upon to make a speech or accept any individual memento. They don’t even need to be in attendance at the event (although we’d love everyone to be there). As we all know a “hero” is in the eye of the beholder, and no one hero is more important than any other hero when thinking about the good of the entire community.  (Do note – heroes do not need to be local!!!)

Is you hero your child’s teacher? A local fireman? The doctors who cured your medical ailment? Your next door neighbor? Your mom or dad? Your seeing eye dog? The list is endless!

Even if you aren’t able to attend the event, please let us know who your Everyday Heroes are so we can properly salute them at our November 11 event. In making this submission, we would appreciate:

  • Your name
  • Your hero’s name (if you are submitting a group, then just include the generic or specific name of the group)
  • Your relationship to this person/group
  • One or two sentences why this person/group is your hero.

Send submissions to us at hero@tecare.org. All submissions need to be made no later than October 15. The sooner we can begin to gather the names, the better off we’ll be.  And yes you CAN send in more than one name!

Please note: We will not be separately contacting your Everyday Hero prior to the event. If you choose to let him/her/them know about this submission that’s totally up to you.
