Heroes_WebBannerSACRAMENTO, Calif., Tuesday, November 3, 2015 – The American Red Cross Gold Country Region is seeking out the local heroes of Sacramento and Yolo counties to be honored at the annual Heroes Recognition luncheon – to be held on Friday, January 22 in Woodland.

The Red Cross is asking community members to nominate individuals who they consider heroes. Do you know someone that who has demonstrated an act(s) of heroism in the last year? Now is your chance to place them in the spotlight. Submit the story of your hero and why they should be recognized.

Candidates for nomination can be anyone that lives or works in Sacramento, Yolo  and Placer counties who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to exhibit a true act of selflessness. There are seven different categories for nomination including adult and young good Samaritans, animal rescue, first responder, workplace, military and all-around Red Cross hero.

The Heroes event is an opportunity to not only honor those who are not ordinarily recognized for their courage, but also offer an opportunity to recognize the bravery that surrounds us and our communities everyday.

The deadline to submit nominations for this year’s event is Thursday, December 3, 2015. Nominations can be filled out and submitted online at http://bit.ly/Heroes2016.
