Sept. 23 fundraiser to benefit the memory of fallen first responders

22 August 2023

BILOXI, Miss. – On Saturday, September 23, Beau Rivage Resort & Casino hosts the 4th Annual Saving A Hero’s Place Gala. The event will be held in the resort’s Magnolia Ballroom and includes a comedy show from Vinnie Montez, words from a survivor, silent and live auctions, food, drinks and more.

“Beau Rivage has been a proud supporter of Saving a Hero’s Place on several endeavors to recognize our fallen first responders, and we are thrilled to host their annual gala for the first time in Biloxi,” said Beau Rivage President and COO Brandon Dardeau. “We appreciate the mission and dedication of this volunteer organization and the impact that it has on communities throughout the country.”

Saving A Hero’s Place is a Texas-based non-profit organization run by police officers and family whose mission is to honor fallen first responders by providing their departments with a permanent place of reverence -a custom-built memorial chair known as the ‘Honor Chair.’ Fallen Biloxi Officer Robert McKeithen’s ‘Honor Chair’ is on display at the Lopez Quave Biloxi Public Safety Center to promote healing and peace through remembrance of Officer McKeithen and other public safety officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Tickets are $100 per person, and sponsorships are available. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit Saving a Hero’s Place.

Already known as the crown jewel of the Gulf Coast, Beau Rivage Resort & Casino continues to raise the bar.
