(AUDIO) The Current Features: Our Heroes Luncheon & Ryan Nece

It’s almost time for the 20th Annual Our Heroes Luncheon! This year’s function will be hosted by Q105’s Mason Dixon and it take place on May 28th at the Tampa Convention Center.

The luncheon honors our everyday heroes, those brave men and women who are part of law enforcement and fire rescue in Hillsborough County.

We had the pleasure of talking with three of the heroes who will be honored at this year’s luncheon: Corporal Monique Barry, Police Officer of the Year; Officer David Pluskota, and John Rankin, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue. Words cannot express how much we’d like to give thanks to these brave men and women for what they do to serve and protect us. To find out how you can purchase tickets to attend the 20th Annual Our Heroes Luncheon, please visit them online.
