Know someone who deserves a hero’s recognition?
The American Red Cross Midway-Kansas Chapter is seeking nominations for its fifth Wichita Heroes Breakfast fundraiser, an event that honors local people who have acted extraordinarily in the past year.
Eligible nominees must have lived, worked or performed a heroic act in the greater Wichita metropolitan area and fall into one of nine categories:
Heroes selected from the pool of nominees will be announced in November then honored at the breakfast, set for 7:30 a.m. on Dec. 10 at the Wichita Marriott, 9100 E. Corporate Hills Drive. Proceeds from the breakfast benefit Red Cross Midway-Kansas Chapter programs and services, which help more than 40,000 locals annually.
Nominations will be accepted at www.WichitaHeroesBreakfast.org through Aug. 29. Paper forms can be requested by calling 316-219-4088.
Priority will be given to nominees who performed heroic acts after July 1, 2013.
