Honoring everyday people doing extraordinary things to help others in our community
Silicon Valley Heroes Celebration Honors Local Heroes
This signature event benefits the many lifesaving programs and services that the chapter provides, including responding to local disasters, collecting lifesaving blood, teaching skills that can save a life, and assisting military members and their families. Thank You for Your Support in 2018!
Close to 200 guests, including 13 honored individuals and organizations, joined the American Red Cross Silicon Valley Chapter at a spectacular event held at the historic Villa Montalvo estate in Saratoga on October 3, 2018. The evening paid tribute to community members and organizations for their selfless acts of courage. The highly successful event raised over $185K in commitments and pledges from generous sponsors and donors. A special thank you to the matching donation challenge from Chris and Jeff Carlton.
