Red Cross Heroes Awards of Geauga and Lake Counties

banner

As a community leader in emergency preparedness and response, the American Red Cross of Northeast Ohio will honor local heroes from Geauga and Lake Counties at a special breakfast event on Thursday, April 25, 2013. The Red Cross will recognize and pay tribute to local individuals who have shown extraordinary courage, compassion, character or humanity by saving or improving the lives of others. These values mirror those that motivate and inspire the work of the Red Cross. The breakfast is presented by Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC and the Wernick Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors.

During the event, the Red Cross will also recognize Jack Sherwin as its 2013 Community Leader Award recipient. Mr. Sherwin’s outstanding leadership and service to community promotes the values that motivate the work of the Red Cross. Mr. Sherwin has been a loyal philanthropic partner of the American Red Cross, the Cleveland Foundation, Hawken School and the Holden Arboretum, among others. Past recipients of the award include Dr. Morris Beverage, Jr., Harry Allen, Jr., and Fairmount Minerals.
