Letter from Southeast Tennessee Executive Director, Julia Wright - November 2015

If you attended the 2015 Heroes Luncheon, the success of this year’s event will come as no surprise.  On Wednesday, October 14 business and community leaders came together to honor local heroes at the CHI Memorial Heroes Luncheon.  Lt. Commander Tim White, Commanding Officer of the Navy Operational Support Center of Chattanooga, spoke to the crowd about his experiences including his interaction with the Red Cross around the world.

Each year, the American Red Cross of Southeast Tennessee honors individuals and groups for acts of great bravery, dedication and service to the community at the Heroes Luncheon, sharing the mission of the American Red Cross and raising the financial funding resources necessary to provide their core humanitarian services.  This year was no different.  We honored six individuals in four categories for their service to the community:  Conner Pearce and Macy Howell as First Responder Heroes; Jason Greer, Humanitarian Hero;  Amy Dickerson, Medical Hero; Jacob Gray and Mason Chamberlain as Youth Heroes.  In addition, over $54,000 was raised to support the local American Red Cross serve in Southeast Tennessee.

Thank you to everyone who made this year’s Heroes Luncheon such a success!
