More than 320 community members attended Support 7’s inaugural dinner earlier this month to recognize the tireless work of the emergency first responders who serve South Snohomish County.
First responders, crisis survivors, community members and friends and family of Support 7 filled the Westgate Chapel gymnasium in Edmonds Oct. 18 to raise awareness and honor the work done by the victim support organization.
The banquet invited members of the Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace and Edmonds police departments, South County Fire Authority and other local agencies. In addition to serving as an awareness dinner, the event was a reunion for many first responders and victims they have aided.
“It’s amazing to me how the Lord has woven all of our lives together,” said Support 7 Executive Director Shannon Sessions.
During the event, Sessions spoke about her hopes for the future of the non-profit organization.
