Red Cross Seeking Heroes Nominations for November Gala

Red Cross Seeking Heroes Nominations
Every day ordinary people make extraordinary contributions by putting their needs aside to help others in our community.

Do you know someone who has done something extraordinary for the community this year? Now is your chance to honor them. The American Red Cross of Central Ohio is seeking nominations for the 2nd Annual Heroes Gala – produced by our young professionals group, the Associate Board. The 2015 Heroes Gala is presented by Abercrombie & Fitch.

Every day ordinary people make extraordinary contributions by putting their needs aside to help others in our community. To celebrate this, the Gala will highlight the values of courage, initiative, compassion, personal responsibility, and humanity which underline heroic actions which save lives and/or demonstrate an unusual degree of character.

Proceeds raised from this event will support critical community services that are offered by the American Red Cross. Heroes will be honored in the following categories:

MILITARY SERVICE: An active, reserve, or retired member of the Armed Forces who acted above and beyond the call of duty, exhibiting heroism either in response to an emergency situation or through an ongoing commitment to the community and profession.

FIRE SERVICE: A professional or volunteer firefighter who acted above and beyond the call of duty, exhibiting heroism either in response to an emergency situation or through an ongoing commitment to the community.

POLICE SERVICE: A professional police officer or related law enforcement official who acted above and beyond the call of duty, exhibiting heroism either in response to an emergency situation or through an ongoing commitment to the community and profession.

The nomination deadline is May 15, 2015 at 5:00pm. The event will be held on Friday, November 13th at the Athletic Club of Columbus. To nominate a hero today, download this form to mail or email in, or you can complete the nomination online here.
