The American Red Cross held its annual Heroes Breakfast on June 4, 2014 at First Baptist Church of Augusta.
The breakfast serves as a capstone of a month long fundraising effort. Hero volunteers raised over $45,000 for the organization. The funds are allocated to stay local and “aid during times of disaster, seeing to the welfare of military families and providing citizens with lifesaving CPR and first aid skills.”
During the breakfast, The American Red Cross recognizes local individuals that have gone above and beyond to impact the life of another. These individuals do not consider themselves to be a hero by definition, but simply acted according to conscience and intuition. This event “celebrate[s] the spirit of humanitarianism by honoring those individuals in the CSRA who have shown courage, kindness and unselfish character by their acts of heroism in our community.” The CSRA is better and stronger because of these heroes.
Brooks Hudson, Associate at Hull Barrett, PC, is a board member of the American Red Cross Augusta Chapter and helped organize the event. The firm is a proud sponsor of this great cause.
