On March 9th, we at the our chapter had the wonderful opportunity to, once again, recognize the local heroes in our community. Over three hundred people joined us at the Capitol Plaza Hotel, where we had great food, auctioned off great prizes, and listened to great stories. We had 15 heroes with 9 awards ranging form the individual who has donated over 26 gallons of blood, to the three lifeguards whose expertise saved a man's life over the summer. Every single story was just as great as the last.
This event would not have been possible without the help of our sponsors. All of us at the American Red Cross wanted to thank them all for helping us put on such a wonderful evening
If you have someone in your life you feel would be great for next year's 2017 Heroes Dinner, please keep us in mind! This is one of our favorite events of the year, and we at the American Red Cross are already looking forward to the next opportunity we have to recognize those around us for their valiant community service.
