Veteran Northwest broadcaster and president of the Puget Sound Energy Foundation Andy Wappler will host the American Red Cross Islands Chapter Real Heroes Breakfast, March 21, at the Swinomish Casino & Lodge in Anacortes.

The Islands Chapter will honor 15 Real Heroes and a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, all nominated by fellow citizens. In addition, the Spirit of Red Cross Award trophy will be presented to a group that exemplifies the humanitarian spirit and compassion of the Red Cross. This year’s Heroes come from all parts of the Chapter’s service area, including Friday Harbor.

The annual Real Heroes Breakfast is the chapter’s only fundraiser for disaster relief, which ensures that support is there for neighbors in need during emergency situations.

Doors open at 7 a.m. and the program begins promptly at 7:30 a.m. Make reservations by March 13; 360-293-2911 or email MaryFrances.Close@redcross.org. Info online at www.redcross.org.
