BranchGives is proud to be a sponsor of the Roanoke Celebration of Heroes Breakfast, Thursday, April 19th, 2018 at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center. This event is a celebration designed to recognize heroes in the Roanoke area who have saved a life, performed an act of courage, or who served unselfishly and gave inspirational leadership in the community. These have also worked tirelessly to raise much-needed funds in order to continue the mission of the American Red Cross of providing disaster relief when it is needed most.

The breakfast was attended by Byron Hicks (GJH), Patrick Finnigan (BCI), Joanne Shervey (TBG), Susan Hristov (TBG), Mike Wallace (GJH), John Frederick (TBG),  as well as a Special Guest Hero. Byron and Patrick are first responders and presented awards to sixteen 911 Operators.
