From the American Red Cross:
The Heroes in the Heartland Awards Luncheon honors individuals from Southwest Iowa and the Omaha metro who have saved another person’s life during the past year or who have positively impacted the quality of life in the Heartland in other ways. This signature event, held each year on the second Wednesday in March, originates from the organization’s belief that qualities of bravery, commitment, dedication and selfless behavior should be recognized and honored.
Nearly 700 guests attended the Heroes in the Heartland event in 2014. The event was featured in seven stories aired by media partner WOWT, as well as in articles from the Omaha World Herald and Metro Magazine. Together with our sponsors and guests, we raised nearly $200,000 for the American Red Cross. Click here to see photos of Heroes in the Heartland 2014!
