On Thursday, October 7, 2021 we will honor Larry’s Hometown Heroes. The event will be held in the ballroom at Rivers Casino. Doors open at 5:30PM and the event begins at 6:30. Tickets include dinner and two drinks.

We’re honored to share that Ryan Shazier will be our keynote speaker at this year’s event.

We’re also very excited to announce this year’s honorees of Larry’s Heroes.

Pleasant Hills Police Officer Kristin Mitrisin for saving a 9-day old baby

Herb Yingling for years of service in the Franklin Regional School District and Athletic Department

Molly and Dan Rupprecht for forming “The Hope Squad” a suicide awareness program following the loss of their daughter to suicide

Carol Succop for 50 years of service to Meals on Wheels

Kelly Ferri a US Army veteran who has now been working with the city of Pittsburgh to lease houses so recovering addicts and newly released prisoners have a place to go after benefitting from the programs herself.

These are people who have significantly influenced the region in their field of service or who have served the community in a heroic manner between January of 2020 and August of 2021.

In addition we are honoring Major League Baseball coach Rich Donnelly as Larry’s Hometown Hero Lifetime Achievement Honoree.
