Description of event
The American Red Cross of West Michigan is proud to announce the 2018 Hometown Heroes Encore on April 10, 2018, at a new and exciting venue, 20 Monroe Live. Don't miss the most talked about event in Grand Rapids this year! Hometown Heroes Encore will mark the end of the heroes event format. Going forward in 2019 we will be hosting a totally different type of fundraiser. As we transition to this new event we want to do one last recognition of our heroes, an Encore of sorts, to honor our past heroes in one night. The event will highlight the collective community impact of all our past Hometown Heroes. In addition to dinner and a program, the evening will offer a live auction and a concert by local band, The Accidentals.
