Celebrating Community Heroes
Each year, the American Red Cross of Chicago & Northern Illinois honors individuals and groups for acts of great bravery, dedication and service to the community at our Heroes Breakfast.
Honorees are selected in 12 different categories. Heroes are chosen by an independent committee of leaders in the business and civic community.
The Red Cross Heroes Breakfast will take place on May 1, 2019.
