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.
