The American Red Cross of the Finger Lakes is accepting nominations for its annual Real Heroes Breakfast which will be held on March 9, 2018 at Wings of Eagles Discovery Center in Horseheads.
Proceeds from the Real Heroes Breakfast benefit the Red Cross, which provides relief to victims of disasters and helps people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies.
The Finger Lakes Chapter serves Chemung, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates counties.
Every now and then, an unselfish and extraordinary action on behalf of a neighbor, a co-worker or even a stranger can change another person’s destiny and, at the same time, their own. At that moment, ordinary people become real heroes.
There are 12 award categories: Animal Rescue, Blood Donor/Services, Education, Fire Rescue, Good Neighbor, Good Samaritan - Adult, Good Samaritan -Youth, Law Enforcement, Lifeline, Medical, Military and Workplace Safety.
The deadline for nominations is Saturday, Dec. 23.
