Hometown Hero Hoedown


Each year, United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties designates a Hometown Hero for each county. Hometown Heroes are those who have made a difference in your community. He or she has gone above and beyond, done far more than what was asked or expected, helped others regardless of who noticed, and made a difference. Lives have been changed because of what your Hometown Hero has shared or made happen. Not all heroes wear capes and most heroes don’t even consider their actions to be heroic. For that reason, who you designate as a hero, and why, has a wide range of options. We accept and consider all of them and look forward to reviewing your nominations.  The Hometown Hero award and presentation is held annually.  Nominations for 2021 have concluded; 2022 nominations will resume soon.

Hometown Hero is April 29th, 2022. Stay Tuned for more details and nominations, as both are coming soon!

Thank you to our 2021 sponsors!

We look forward to working with you in 2022!
