The Northern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross is seeking nominations for its 11th Annual Real Heroes Awards program. Local heroes will be honored at the luncheon on Wednesday March 26th, 2014, at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, sponsored by Nevada State Bank, KTVN Channel 2 News, University of Nevada Reno, and the Reno Gazette-Journal. Nomination forms can be picked up at the Chapter office or online at www.redcross.org/northernnevada and will be accepted through February 14, 2014. Real Heroes is open to all residents from Washoe, Carson City, Douglas, Churchill, Lyon, Storey, Mineral, and Nye Counties.
"Heroes can be individuals, associations, or companies who have gone above and beyond to help a friend, family member, community member or complete stranger in 2013. The American Red Cross is honored to salute our unsung heroes and honor them for their acts of courage and heroism," states Clara Andriola, Regional CEO of the Northern Nevada Chapter.
Local heroes will be recognized at the luncheon thanks to the generous support of corporate, foundation and individual sponsors. Sponsorships are available at this time. The event consistently brings together over 400 influential community leaders and company executives from the Reno/Tahoe/Carson City area. All proceeds from the Real Heroes program will remain in the Northern Nevada area. For more information please call (775) 856-1000 or stop by the Northern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross office located at 1190 Corporate Blvd. In Reno, NV.
