The American Red Cross of Northwest Wisconsin will be holding the annual Heroes Breakfast on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at the Florian Gardens in Eau Claire, WI. The Heroes Breakfast was established in an effort to raise public awareness of local heroes and volunteers who carry out the mission of the Red Cross every day.
We invite you to participate this year and help us to make the 2021 Heroes Breakfast our most successful event yet!
Please note, given the current COVID-19 pandemic, the event may be switched to a virtual format. More information about this change will be coming out soon. However, no matter how we gather for the event, the mission remains the same!
