Eau Claire (WQOW) -- The even may not be for a few months, but the American Red Cross is accepting nominations for their annual Heroes Breakfast now.
Each year, the American Red Cross recognizes everyday heroes in Northwest Wisconsin nominated by their fellow community members. The
nomination process is open until December 31. Whether they're stepping up during a medical emergency to provide assistance or helping others through
a lifetime of volunteerism, heroes reflect what is best about our community. They also inspire others to follow their example.
Hero nominations are accepted in seven categories:
A full description of each category as well as a nomination form is available on the event website at or call Kyle Kriegl at (715) 271-8395 to request a nomination form.
Nominees may come from any of the Northwest Wisconsin Chapter's 17 counties: Ashland, Barron, Bayfield, Buffalo, Burnett, Chippewa, Dunn, Eau Claire, Jackson, Pierce, Pepin, Polk, Rusk, Sawyer, St. Croix, Trempealeau, or Washburn.
Selected heroes will be honored at the Heroes Breakfast celebration on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at the Florian Gardens in Eau Claire, WI.
