2018 Sheep Dogs of the Year

Every year all of us at Sheep Dog Impact Assistance look forward to celebrating our nation’s heroes and the all we have been blessed to accomplish with friends, members, supporters, donors and sponsors at our annual Heroes Gala. It’s been a couple of year’s since we’ve been able to host this event, and we are VERY excited to be hosting it again on April 22, 2023!

This formal event is our largest fundraising event of the year. Monies raised during the evening are used to fund our Get Off The Couch™ programming to engage, assist, and empower Sheep Dogs – military veterans and first responders (law enforcement, fire & rescue, and EMS professionals) – to improve their overall physical and mental well-being, and reengage them in living their best lives.

The Heroes Gala includes a special VIP Reception prior to the start of the event, followed by a social hour and silent auction bidding, a short ceremony, dinner and dancing. Awards are presented to our “Sheep Dogs of the Year,” honoring those Sheep Dogs who have gone above and beyond in the line of duty and lived out the SDIA motto, “Helping Others is a Way of Life.” Our Honorary Chair, Guest Speaker and Guest of Honor are highly motivating and inspiring, and you won’t want to miss them!

We are currently seeking committee members and sponsors to make this year’s event our best yet. If you are interested in being on the committee or sponsor this amazing event, please contact Jayme at (740) 502-7475 or JLingo@SheepDogIA.org.


If you know of a Sheep Dog you’d like to nominate for our 2022 Sheep Dogs of the Year, head on over to the Preliminary Nomination page to learn more about the awards and nomination process.

We hope to see you at our Heroes Gala on April 22, 2023!
