The 2nd Annual “All Services Ball” (ASB) is a charity ball hosted by Honor HER
Foundation of Northwest Florida celebrating all military, law enforcement and first responders past and present.
Every day in our community, we depend on the men and women in EMS, Fire and Police to protect our families, monitor our neighborhoods and work as a unit twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Most of these individuals have loved ones and their own families whom they are also responsible.
Some have even made the ultimate sacrifice, merely by going to work and doing their job. Often these agencies across Santa Rosa, Escambia, Okaloosa and Walton counties are under-appreciated.
The goal of this years “All Services Ball” is to remember those who have been affected suicide. The Veteran Administration statistics confirm 22 Veterans a day are succumbing to suicide on American soil. Numbers released by Blue H.E.L.P. in January of 2020 showed that in 2019, 228 American police officers died by suicide. That research showed an increase from a study done by The Ruderman Family Foundation released in 2018. That study showed that
in 2017, while 129 officers died in the line of duty, 140 died by suicide. The total number of those losing their battle grows larger with each day research and treatments are not able to be done.
The All Services Ball is a public celebration honoring those who heeded the call to serve and protect our nation and communities. We aim to honor those who we have lost to suicide and support the families left behind, educate the public to bring awareness to mental health issues and reduce the stigma, lead in advocating for benefits for those suffering from posttraumatic
stress, and prevent suicide in the law enforcement community. We don’t do all this alone!
