March is Red Cross Month and it is also the 4th annual Heroes series of events starting with Salt Lake City on March 6th. Other dates and locations are March 13th in Provo, March 20th in Ogden, and March 27th in St. George. This beloved annual series of events honors Utahns all across the state who have demonstrated extraordinary courage, compassion or service. At the event you will get to meet these heroes and hear their amazing and inspiring stories. These are also fundraising events with proceeds benefiting disaster services right here in Utah.
For more than 70 years, all of our country's presidents, including President Barack Obama, have designated March Red Cross Month to recognize the great service of the Red Cross around the country and around the world. Locally here in Utah, Governor Herbert has also proclaimed March Red Cross Month and he will also be speaking at the kick off event on March 6th in Salt Lake. Tickets may be puchased on line at www.redcross.org/utah . Sponsorship opporunities are also available by calling Margie Woodruff at 801-323-7015.
