Hello, Nashville Area Red Cross Volunteers!
With just a couple weeks to go until our Annual Lifesaver Breakfast, it’s a busy time for our staff and volunteers who work so tirelessly to make this event a huge success each year. The Lifesaver Breakfast is our only fundraiser event for the Nashville Area Chapter, raising the financial resources necessary to provide our humanitarian services.
This year, Celebrity Cabinet member and multi-platinum country star Trace Adkins will present the Red Cross Crystal Cross Award to iHeartMedia’s nationally-syndicated The Bobby Bones Show for their outstanding philanthropic support. The Crystal Cross Award honors celebrities and entertainment partners who have shown exemplary support of, and service to, the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross.
Lt. General Russel L. Honoré will be the keynote speaker. A tireless advocate for the Red Cross and the importance of preparedness, he is best known for serving as commander of Joint Task Force Katrina. From global and domestic terrorist threats to natural disasters, Lt. General Russel L. Honoré will address the risks to our individual, community and economic security. In his straightforward, no-nonsense approach, Lt. General Russel L. Honoré will share critical strategies for transforming individuals into resilient leaders and helping organizations and communities effectively prepare, react, rebound and unify.
Thank you to everyone working hard to make this event a success, and to all volunteers who work around the clock to ensure the dollars raised at the Breakfast benefit our neighbors during their greatest time of need.
