Annual Celebration

As an annual community celebration, the Real Heroes event is the signature fundraising event for American Red Cross Cascades region. The Real Heroes event grew out of the desire to develop an event that is closely related to the Red Cross Mission - Saving lives through prevention, preparedness and response. It recognizes the heroic deeds of everyday people while raising undesignated operational revenue for your local Red Cross. This year’s celebration is even more special because it marks 20 years of Heroes Breakfast events and 100 years of the Red Cross in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
