Someone who has done something extraordinary for someone else this year? Someone who has saved a life or responded courageously to a disaster? Now is your chance to honor them. The American Red Cross is seeking nominations for the Fifth Annual Everyday Heroes Awards.

Every day ordinary people make extraordinary contributions by putting their needs aside to help others in our community. The American Red Cross is honored to salute these unsung heroes. Your hero might be a lifeguard who saved a drowning child or a 911 operator who provided extra help until firefighters or police arrived; an ordinary citiz en who performed CPR when a stranger collapsed at a shopping mall, or who saved a neighb or’s beloved pets from a fire.

The awards are presented by the Southern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross and Caesar’s Entertainment, with generous support from Greenspun Media Group, 8 News NOW and their Community Pride Partners: NV Energy, McDonald’s and Humana Health Care Partners.
