Red Cross Honors Real Heroes of Yakima Valley at Awards Breakfast
YAKIMA, Wash. - The Yakima Valley Chapter of the Red Cross presented seven awards to local citizens for being "Real Heroes" Thursday morning at the Yakima Convention Center.
The ninth annual breakfast serves as a way to recognize ordinary people who have made extraordinary contributions over the past year. It is also one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for the local chapter of the Red Cross.
KNDO-TV is one of the sponsors for the event and asked each of its Yakima reporters to tell the story of each award receipient for the breakfast and our evening newscasts.
All seven stories are online in the "Community" section of our website under "Real Heroes for 2009." One story will air on our 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. newscasts for the next seven weekdays starting Thursday.
