On February 27, 1987, the first Heart of the Community event was held at the Coosa Country Club. It was sponsored by Redmond Park Hospital and WRGA/WQTU Radio, and the event raised funds for the American Heart Association.
Each year, the Heart of the Community Awards event honors residents of Rome for their committed service and dedication to the community. Over 275 local heroes have been honored thus far.
Please join in supporting the 2021-2022 Heart of the Community Awards of Honor as our salute to individuals dedicated to volunteerism. All sponsors will receive recognition in the program, as well as tickets to the event.
