Gary Sinise Foundation Snowball Express was incredibly honored to host the surviving spouses of fallen military heroes at our recent Nashville Adventure event! It was a special time for these spouses to honor their fallen hero, make new memories, and connect with one another. On behalf of our very own Gary Sinise and everyone at the Foundation, we sincerely thank all our nation’s military spouses for all you do and honor the sacrifices you make.
The festivities began with a City Adventure meet and greet on the first night, which included line dancing on the rooftop while the wives shared stories of their fallen hero.
These selfless heroes were also treated to a "Glam Day" of beauty, relaxation, and fun! Thanks to the gracious generosity of Paul Mitchell The School Nashville these ladies were pampered by Paul Mitchell Schools.
These amazing ladies also got a chance to visit the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, where they were treated to a surprise visit by famed Hollywood actor Dennis Quaid who took time to meet with everyone and take photos!
Non-stop laughter and smiles were had by all at the downtown Nashville scavenger hunt!
We also stopped by the historic Studio B in Nashville, where Elvis Presley recorded his iconic song "Love Me Tender."
The Walking Hope ceremony was extremely powerful for these surviving spouses as they joined hands and took a moment to remember that they are not alone, to know that someone is always following them and that they represent hope for so many others.
We also treated everyone to a tour of the Tennessee Titans stadium and locker room, where each surviving spouse was presented with custom jerseys with the names of their fallen hero.
And last but not least, we treated these incredible heroes with a behind-the-scenes tour of the Grand Ole Opry, the world-famous home of country music!
