Red Cross Saluting Our Heroes Breakfast

Join WJBC and the American Red Cross of Central Illinois for the Saluting Our Heroes Breakfast on Thursday, November 7th, 2019 at The DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington from 7:30-9:00am.

Nominate your hero! The American Red Cross is currently seeking nominations for the annual breakfast. Heroes will be honored at the breakfast on November 7th. Nominations are due by Aug. 31 on the Red Cross website HERE.

Heroes are everyday people who boldly step up to help others when there is a need. It could be an individual or a group whose acts of courage and kindness make them a hero and our community a safer and healthier place. They are humble heroes, never seeking attention, but instead working tirelessly for the betterment of others. Please join WJBC and the American Red Cross as we honor and celebrate these heroes and share their inspiring stories.
