The Finger Lakes Chapter of the American Red Cross is accepting nominations for its 7th Annual Real Heroes Breakfast which will be held on March 4, 2016 at the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center in Horseheads.
Proceeds from the Real Heroes Breakfast support Red Cross programs and services such as disaster response, preparedness education, and Service to the Armed Forces.
The Finger Lakes Chapter serves Chemung, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates counties.
Every now and then, an unselfish and extraordinary action on behalf of a neighbor, a co-worker or even a stranger can change another person’s destiny and, at the same time, their own. At that moment, ordinary people become real heroes.
There are 12 award categories: Animal Rescue, Blood Donor/Services, Education, Fire Rescue, Good Neighbor, Good Samaritan (Adult), Good Samaritan (Youth), Law Enforcement, Lifeline, Medical, Military and Workplace Safety.
The deadline for nominations is Dec. 31.
