2014 Heroes Breakfast a Success

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the 18th Annual Heroes Breakfast in Seattle! Because of the community’s generous support we were able to raise over $387,000 to support our critical services and programs.

For more than a century, the Red Cross has been a community leader in emergency preparedness and response. Our Annual Heroes Breakfast honors that longstanding tradition of heroism by recognizing local individuals whose extraordinary acts of courage or kindness make them a hero.

This year, 10 individuals were honored for lifesaving acts, preparedness measures and other efforts in our community. Thank you to all of the heroes, table captains, sponsors and attendees. A special thank you to this year’s Leadership Sponsors: Costco Wholesale and Puget Sound Energy. Also, thank you to our award sponsors: The Boeing Company, Coinstar, Overlake Medical Center, PEMCO Insurance, Safeco Insurance and Symetra. As always, we couldn’t have done it without you! What a wonderful event.

Tiffany Circle Prepares

On Tuesday, April 30, members of the local Tiffany Circle gathered at the Seattle Tennis Club to learn about preparedness with the American Red Cross. They learned how to take action to prepare homes, workplaces and communities for the “The Big Earthquake.”

As supporters of the Red Cross they know it’s important to prepare for when the next disaster strikes. By  learning about local disasters, preparedness kits, home hazards and post-disaster communication needs, these Tiffany Circle members took a step toward preparedness.

Thank you to the Seattle Tennis Club for hosting us!
