Yakima Valley Real Heroes Celebration

Yakima Heroes Event

Nomination deadline closes on January 10th, so please change page copy early on January 11th to the following:

Ordinary people. Extraordinary courage. We use these words when discussing the nominees for our annual Real Heroes Luncheon on March 26th...for it truly epitomizes the people recognized that day. The Real Heroes event celebrates the power of humanitarian spirit in our community by honoring local citizens for doing something remarkable to help others.

Hero nominations are now closed for this year. Thank you to everyone who nominated a 'Real Hero.' An independent panel of judges will review all nominations and select one recipient per category who will be honored at the March 26th event. A video vignette detailing each hero's actions will be produced by KNDO.

All proceeds from the Real Heroes Luncheon will support local Red Cross services.

For more information about the event or to RSVP, call the chapter at (509) 834-2650 or email colleen.riley@redcross.org
