Hearts for Blue Gala
Held during Veteran's Day weekend, this event is our bi-annual fundraiser. This event is more than your typical fundraiser we take this opportunity to incorporate education, encouragement, therapeutic humor, honor to our cops and military, and always some great surprises for our guests.
Our Inaugural Gala was held November 9, 2018, just 36 hours after the Camp Fire hit in nearby Paradise, California. Many of those who bought tickets for the event could not make it because of the fire--it was completely demolishing an entire town, and our officers were on mandatory tactical alert. The event was a welcome temporary distraction for a few hours for those who did attend--the night put the FUN in fundraiser. Bling, amazing raffle and silent auction items, incredible desserts, amazing food accompanied with musical themes of cop shows and movies, photo booth, and more. Truly a night to remember. 2019 continued that tradition and did not disappoint.
Due to COVID restrictions and venue shutdown, our 2020 Hearts for Blue Gala was cancelled; however, we are excited to bring back our valued tradition this year with a Roaring 20s themed event for 2022!

Boots 4 Blue BBQ
In October 2021, H2LOC held a spectacular event in the farmlands of South Sacramento. We ate amazing BBQ fare catered by Ingram Eatz, had a line dancing lesson, spent money on amazing raffle prizes and silent auction items, received a report of what H2LOC accomplished the last two years, and then enjoyed a private concert by Brodie Stewart. The night concluded with fireworks!!!
We encourage, educate and facilitate community on this full day of instruction, connection, good food, and surprises.
March 2019 was our first conference in Sacramento, California and attended by over 160 women and men.
We were able to continue this event in 2022 with Spouse events in both Sacramento and Maine, serving over 250 men and women.
2023 Planning is already in works, and we look forward to serving more cities as we grow.
Held near Belfry, Montana, this retreat is a safe place for officers who've been wounded in the line of duty and their spouses. Attendees experience five days of encouragement, connection with others who've been through similar incidents, recreational equine therapy, fly fishing, optional spiritual instruction, relaxation, and workshops specific to their circumstances.
This program is on hold until further notice.
"It is indescribable the feeling of being with others who understand. This retreat is a blessing from God! Can't thank you all enough." Attendee, 2019 Retreat
