The Hero Awards are a Red Cross tradition honoring individuals who have shown extraordinary courage, compassion and humanity by saving or improving the lives of others. The values we recognize in our Heroes mirror those that motivate and inspire the work of the Red Cross.
The luncheon event is sponsored by many of the region’s philanthropic and corporate leaders, raising approximately $180,000 to support the important mission of the Red Cross. The 300-500 person audience is made up of business leaders, heroes and their families. Those who attend this well-loved community event are inspired by the heroes’ stories and encouraged to become more engaged in their communities and favorite causes.
