Hometown Heroes Celebration 2017

Michigan Red Cross Hometown Heroes Celebration 2017

For over 10 years, the American Red Cross of West Michigan has celebrated more than 50 extraordinary individuals who inspire us through their commitment to service and their recognition of the humanity of their neighbors down the street, across the country, and around the world.

Join us as we celebrate this year's heroes and their commitment to creating a safer and stronger community. This year the Hometown Heroes Celebration will be held the evening of Thursday, April 13, 2017 at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. The Celebration promises a cocktail hour, sit down dinner, silent & live auction, and the opportunity to network with members of our community and organization.
