American Red Cross to Postpone HCA/TriStar Health Lifesaver Breakfast Due to Impending Winter Weather

Fundraiser event rescheduled for May 14

The Nashville Area Chapter of the American Red Cross has postponed the HCA/TriStar Health Lifesaver Breakfast due to winter weather expected in the area this evening through tomorrow morning. The breakfast, originally planned for Thursday, March 5, has been rescheduled for Thursday, May 14.

“Due to anticipated inclement weather in the area, we feel it is best to reschedule this event,” said Joel Sullivan, Regional CEO. “The safety of our guests, staff and volunteers is our number one priority, and we plan to focus our efforts on being prepared for and responding to the impending winter storm.”

Each year, the Lifesaver Breakfast hosts Nashville’s most influential business and community leaders, sharing the mission of the American Red Cross and raising the financial funding resources necessary to provide their core humanitarian services. The event is typically held in March in collaboration with Red Cross Month, a month long celebration of everyday heroes who help those in need.

“We are so thankful for the generous support of HCA/TriStar Health, Nissan and all of our wonderful sponsors and community partners this year,” said Harry Jacobson, event Chairperson. “The Lifesaver Breakfast would not happen without the support of our community, and we look forward to celebrating with them in May.”

The HCA/TriStar Health Lifesaver Breakfast will be held on Thursday, May 14 at 7:30 a.m. at the Omni Hotel in downtown Nashville. Steve Forbes, Chairman & Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media, will be this year’s keynote speaker.
