Now in its 5th year, the Smyrna Heroes Gala is a community-wide, volunteer effort by area residents and businesses that honors our firefighter and police officer heroes by setting aside one evening to celebrate these dedicated individuals who protect and serve our community 24/7. Proceeds from the Gala benefit the Smyrna Public Safety Foundation (SPSF), a 501(c)(3) organization that supports both the community and Smyrna’s Public Safety employees.
