Gold Star Family Outreach Programs and Events

As a part of our mission at the Hershel “Woody” Williams Medal of Honor Foundation, we sponsor and host outreach programs and events for Gold Star Families. These events are intended to provide opportunities for Gold Star Families to come together, honor their fallen Heroes, and enjoy one another while also raising public awareness about Gold Star Families, their sacrifice, and the sacrifice of their Loved Ones.


Date: Sunday July 9, 2017

Time: 2:05pm

The second annual Gold Star Family Day at the Ball Park will be held in Louisville, KY, welcoming and hosting 300 GOLD STAR FAMILY members to a Louisville Bats baseball game. These family members will enjoy the Bats baseball experience along with a catered lunch as well as special activities for Gold Star Family children including autographs from Bats players before the game and running the bases on Louisville Slugger field following the game. As a part of this special day Gold Star Family members will be throwing out the first pitch as well as singing our National Anthem. Bats baseball has also agreed to offer special recognition to these families in honor of their enduring sacrifice.

The Hershel “Woody” Williams Medal of Honor Foundation in conjunction with Louisville Bats Baseball and Survivor Outreach Services would like to present the second annual Gold Star Family Day at the Ball Park. This partnership keeps with the efforts of these organizations in their continued commitment and support of those who have sacrificed so much in the name of our freedom. By hosting 300 Gold Star Family members to a Bats baseball game, it is our hope to; honor Gold Star Families families and their fallen heroes, raise awareness about Gold Star Families, and to simply show them that this community cares for Gold Star Families.
