Thursday March 30th, 2017 at 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM  /  St. Regis Hotel – Atlanta

HSL Event Sign_2017

For 28 years, Heroes, Saints & Legends has honored individuals who through a lifetime commitment to philanthropy, volunteerism and devotion to the community have transformed lives. Heroes, Saints & Legends is noteworthy for honoring community leaders as well as for raising awareness around the challenges older adults face and how we can work together for solutions, so that all older adults across North Georgia, regardless of their circumstances, can live independently longer, with a higher quality of life.

Funds raised through Heroes, Saints & Legends are used to ensure Wesley Woods Senior Living residents remain in their homes and receive all of the loving care they need for as long as possible. Additionally, funds raised will also further research, education, early detection and intervention programs at Emory University, our longtime partner, that contribute both to patient care and an eventual cure for both Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
