College Station Noon Lions Club Hosts Honoring Our Heroes Luncheon


BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) — To support Brazos Valley first responders, the College Station Noon Lions Club is hosting its annual Honoring Our Heroes Luncheon. Lion member and event chair Ron Gay joined First News at Four to share more.

Proceeds will go to the 100 Club and College Station Noon Lions Club charities. The 100 Club raises funds for the families of first responders who have been injured or killed in the line of duty.

“We go to work every morning and we’re relatively sure we’re going to come home at night, and these people when they wake up, they kiss their family goodbye, they might not come home that night,” Gay said.

Brazos County has had four first responders killed in the line of duty since 2010.

“We are one of 27 counties that surround Harris County where they have expanded the 100 Club and of those 27 counties I am proud to say that Brazos County raises the most money outside of Harris County “, revealed Gay.

Their featured speaker will be Kathryn Childers – one of the first five female US Secret Service special agents hired in 1971. Childers will be available to sign her book – ‘Scared Fearless: An Unlikely Agent in the US Secret Service’, as well as take photos with the attendees.

The event will take place on Tuesday, May 17 at the Hilton from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
