The Santa Clarita Service Center of the American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles (ARCGLA) will honor its very own local heroes on Friday, Sept. 11, 2009 at 7:30 a.m. with a special "Hometown Heroes" breakfast at the Valencia Hyatt Hotel.

This prestigious event aims to highlight the selfless Red Cross volunteers of Santa Clarita, and thank them for their dedicated service throughout the past year.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Commander Lee Baca will be the keynote speaker at the breakfast. Television news anchor Rick Chambers will again be master of ceremonies. The breakfast will also pay tribute to victims of 9/11.

"We are so grateful to all of our Red Cross volunteers," said Donna Nuzzi, Council Chair of the ARCGLA's Santa Clarita Service Area. "(They are) people who feed others who are hungry, clothes those who need clothing and help house those who need shelter -- people who care for others: the dedicated men and women of the American Red Cross."

Disaster relief from the Red Cross in the Santa Clarita Valley takes many forms. Hometown heroes are people who have displayed heroic or humanitarian actions in the SCV -- people whose compassionate, caring and charitable actions exemplify the true spirit of the American Red Cross -- people known throughout the valley.

Nominees are being selected in the following categories: First Responders; Youth (through 17); Adult (18 to 59); Animal, Educator (classroom); Medical; Workplace; Military; Youth Sports Mentor; and Senior (60 plus).

"The care of our clients takes many caring volunteers, and we want to recognize, honor and thank those volunteers," Nuzzi added.

Sponsorships are available. For tickets to the breakfast, call the Santa Clarita American Red Cross office at (661) 259-1805.

Governed by volunteers and supported by community donations, the American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles is dedicated to saving lives while helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to disasters.
