Sphere 1 Members & Suppliers Raise Over $270,000 for Building Homes for Heroes

The Sphere 1 family of Members-Distributors and Preferred Suppliers came together on May 3, 2023 at its Annual Awards Dinner in Indianapolis, Indiana to support injured Veterans and First Responders that have served our country.  The evening kicked off with an inspiring speech by former U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant and Building Homes for Heroes’ beneficiary, SGT Aaron Hale.  Sergeant Hale shared how a blast from an IED bomb he was working to defuse exploded in front of him, almost taking his life and causing him to become blind and deaf. His story inspired and moved all in attendance to give in support of Building Homes for Heroes.
