RENO — The Northern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross will be honoring local heroes and ordinary citizens who have shown extraordinary courage at the eighth annual Red Cross Real Heroes Breakfast at 7:30 a.m. March 31 at Harrah’s in downtown Reno.

The community can help the chapter identify those individuals, associations or companies that have gone above and beyond to help a friend, family member, community member or complete stranger during 2010. Nomination forms can be downloaded from the chapter web site and will be accepted through Jan. 21. Two recent digital photographs must accompany each nomination.

Corporations are invited to support this uplifting event, which attracts more than 400 members of our community. Preferred sponsorships are available. All proceeds from the event will be used to provide emergency relief to people who are displaced from their homes because of fire or other disasters, to teach lifesaving CPR skills and to provide support to the armed forces and their families.

Tickets to the event are $35 per person. Tables of eight also are available for purchase.

For more information about nominations, sponsorships or ticket sales, contact the chapter office at 856-1000 or visit
