2012 Red Cross Real Heroes Breakfast

Posted: Updated:

More than 600 people watched as Red Cross Real Heroes were honored Thursday morning at the TRAC in Pasco.

This was the 10th annual Red Cross Real Heroes Breakfast, and is the organization's biggest fundraiser.

Before breakfast guests walked through a display of red cross services.

Organizers say it's a great event for supporting the red cross and recognizing heroes in the community.

"What I like about it is there's spontaneous people that do what the Red Cross is ready to do at a moments notice. And so we can celebrate that spirit of kindness and compassion," says Executive Director Jeanne Jelke.

Yakima's Real Hero luncheon is just a few weeks away; it will be downtown at the Howard Johnson on March 20th.
