Heroes Soiree event to be held March 8, 2019
Denver, October 29, 2018: Every day in Colorado there are events that disrupt lives and cause suffering. The Red Cross has been serving Colorado for over 100 years, providing comfort and hope to people affected by disaster, teaching lifesaving skills and supporting our nation’s military. In addition to Red Cross volunteers, caring bystanders, trained volunteers and professionals, as well as our military are there when others are in need.
Each year, we recognize people from our community, who have stepped forward in times of need at the American Red Cross Heroes Soiree. Recognizing local heroes is not only a rewarding and moving experience for us. However, being able to celebrate those heroes publicly throughout our community and honor their efforts, are the highlight of the evening.
We hope you will nominate those around you to receive a Community Hero Award for an extraordinary act or acts in the last year to be presented at this year’s American Red Cross Heroes Soiree.
We are seeking individuals and organizations to be nominated for acts including:
· Responding at a time of others’ desperate need to save a life or give comfort (including using first aid, CPR, or an AED)
· Extraordinary act of service during an emergency, disaster, or deployment
· Dedication to preparing for or preventing disasters and emergencies
· Impactful service in support of our Armed Forces or military families
Please nominate those whose actions made a difference. Nominations may be submitted online at http://redcross.org/ColoradoHeroNominate. The deadline for nominations is December 15, 2018
The American Red Cross Heroes Soiree will be on March 8, 2019. This year we will be Celebrating Community and showcasing our local heroes at the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver.
