The American Red Cross Heroes Breakfast is the largest annual fundraising event for the Cape, Islands and Southeast MA chapter. More than 500 heroes, individuals, community leaders, business owners, family and friends will be in attendance. At the breakfast, we are proud to showcase how local heroes change lives. Selfless heroics–whether through saving a life or enriching and transforming lives over years of service to our community–make a difference in the Cape, Islands and Southeast MA communities. Every person we highlight is a true hero.

The Red Cross touches lives in our community every day through programs and services such as disaster relief and health & safety training.
