“We’re thrilled to recognize true heroes who are serving our communities every day,” said Becky Firey, executive director of the American Red Cross of Orange County. “It’s an honor to share their inspiring stories with the public and highlight the impact of local, everyday heroes across our region.”

Individual event tickets and sponsorships are available now. This year’s event will raise funds for Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces (SAF), which proudly serves military members, veterans and their families. A Little Help Foundation will match all event donations up to $25,000.
