The American Red Cross Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake Counties Chapter is seeking nominations for heroes to honor at its 11th Annual Real Heroes Breakfast to be held Thursday, April 17, 2014.

The Real Heroes Breakfast is a powerful event that honors those who have selflessly helped others during the past year—someone who has taken action to help others or has consistently shown an extraordinary gift for human compassion—the values and principles of the American Red Cross.

We are seeking nominations for heroes. Please tell us why the person or animal you would like to nominate is a hero. Be sure to include any news article, police reports, or names of witnesses so that we may call to verify the heroic act.

  • Animal
  • Education
  • Environment
  • Humanitarian Adult
  • Humanitarian Youth
  • Law Enforcement
