20th Annual Heroes Breakfast a Success

Pierce County Heroes Breakfast for the American Red Cross
This year, 18 individuals and one school were honored for lifesaving acts, preparedness measures and other efforts in our community.

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the 20th Annual Pierce County Heroes Breakfast on October 23, 2013!

For more than a century, the Red Cross has been a community leader in emergency preparedness and response. Our Annual Heroes Breakfast honors that longstanding tradition of heroism by recognizing local individuals whose extraordinary acts of courage or kindness make them a hero.

This year, 18 individuals and one school were honored for lifesaving acts, preparedness measures and other efforts in our community. In addition, a special recognition award was presented to Carter Taylor, founder of the Heroes Breakfast 20 years ago. Thank you to all of the heroes, table captains, sponsors and attendees. A special thank you to this year’s Leadership Sponsors: Franciscan Health System and MultiCare Health System. Also, thank you to our Award Sponsors: The Boeing Company, Columbia Bank, The Mattich Family, Puget Sound Energy, Simpson Lumber Company/Simpson Tacoma Kraft and UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans. As always, we couldn't have done it without you! What a wonderful event.
