It’s all about celebrating people who have made Orange County a better place.
Calling all heroes! Do you know an “ordinary” person with extraordinary courage? Someone who has saved a life, helped a neighbor in need, or made a difference in their community?
The American Red Cross Serving Orange County is looking for local heroes to recognize at their annual Orange County Heroes Awards Luncheon at Hotel Irvine on May 3, 2017.
The Heroes Luncheon raises public awareness of local heroes who carry out the mission of the Red Cross every day. The awards ceremony gives the community an opportunity to honor local individuals who have made a personal commitment to creating safer and stronger communities and providing help when disaster strikes.
“Every day, we are surrounded by heroes - ordinary people with extraordinary courage. We live amongst those who have saved lives, helped neighbors in need, and who have made a lasting difference in their communities,” said Linda Voss, Regional CEO of the American Red Cross Desert to the Sea Region. “As we celebrate 100 years of service, we recognize this area is home to many whose deeds of courage and humanitarian service are truly selfless - yet many of these deeds go unnoticed. That is, until now. It’s all about celebrating people who have made Orange County a better place.”
The American Red Cross serving Orange County is now accepting nominations for the following categories:
All nomination forms must be received no later than March 10, 2017. If you know someone deserving of recognition, simply submit your nomination online or via mail or email.
