Letter About Heroes of Tomorrow from Stew Smith - Founder

On April 8th, the Heroes of Tomorrow and I are being honored at the Severna Park Community Center’s Annual Gala.  I am humbled by this recognition and I am grateful for the opportunity to highlight SPCC’s contribution to my Heroes of Tomorrow program.   I created the Heroes of Tomorrow nearly 15 years ago to provide an entirely free training program for those seeking any of the military, special ops, police and fire fighting professions.  It could not exist as it is without SPCC’s generosity, allowing young men and women to use the facilities for FREE if they are part of the Heroes of Tomorrow program.  We typically work out using the weight room, basketball court, and swimming pool early in the morning every day, year round.  People come from out of state, even across the country to join our program, as it is open to everyone who wants to serve our country and communities.

 Video Story on the Heroes of Tomorrow and the Severna Park Community Center

The Severna Park Community Center is a non-profit organization that provides a gathering space for activities that serve all members of the community from children to seniors.  It exists largely on donations.  As a way to say thanks for supporting our program, I’m asking you to help me support SPCC as they prepare for their Annual Gala – the biggest fundraiser of the year.

There are a variety of ways to support this incredible organization:

1 – Donate to the Red, White, and Blue Campaign at the SPCC Website:

RED – $25                 WHITE $50                  BLUE $100                STAR $200

2 – Donate something for the silent or live auction.  Since we will be honoring many military, special ops, police, and fire fighters, any related item or art would be a great addition to the evening.  You can also purchase and bid on items as we will have a Virtual Silent Auction Gallery as well.   Contact Sue Valentine if interested in donating items to be auctioned.

3 – Become a sponsor of the event.  Buy a table or an advertisement in the program.

4 – Attend the SPCC Gala and meet 200+ people in the community with a goal of ensuring the future of this non-profit community center in the heart of our town. If you are interested in attending the Gala – tickets are $175 (your donation includes dinner, gift bag, live auction, entertainment) – you can email me at Stew@stewsmith.com and we will send you the tickets link.  We are limited to 250 total.

5 – Attend the Spec Ops Triathlon (Noon April 8th) – Join us as we do a 4 mile run / 4 mile ruck and a 1 mile swim at the Severna Park Community Center.  This is where you can work out with us, get help with swimming as there is a teaching lane during the 1 mile swim portion, and donate to a great cause.  See link for sign up information to the Spec Ops Tri.

6 – Sponsor your business  logo on our Heroes of Tomorrow T Shirts.  For $100, we will keep your logo on our shirts we sell at StewSmith.com and other events for a full year.  See Link to Sponsor our shirt.

And of course, you can always join us for a FREE workout whenever you are in the area.

I have had the honor of helping to prepare thousands of people who have gone on to serve this country.  With your help, we will continue to run the Heroes of Tomorrow – helping thousands more prepare for their future profession’s physical rigors.  This requires about 600 hours a year of donated time from myself and facility usage at the Severna Park Community Center.  If the SPCC stays open, we have a home.   Help us pave the way to SPCC’s and the Heroes of Tomorrow’s future by making the SPCC Gala one of the best ever!    Whatever your contribution, it makes a wonderful difference.  All money goes to the SPCC and since they are a non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible.

Thanks for your time and consideration,

Stew Smith
