BNY Mellon will be receiving the Corporate Leadership Award, Mr. Durkin will be presented with the Humanitarian Award, and Candice Bergen will receive the Vanguard Award. Additionally, the Red Cross will pay special tribute to two exceptional individuals who, in the face of adversity, stepped up to perform extraordinary acts—Jermaine Shirley and Pamela Rauseo.
From now through October 23, the Red Cross is calling on New Yorkers to recognize, via Twitter or Instagram—using the hashtag #RedTieHeroes—those individuals who have gone above and beyond to help someone in need. Throughout the month, via Red Cross social media, as well as during the October 23 event, the Red Cross will share a selection of these submitted stories.
