Honorary Chairs


The American Red Cross is pleased to announce that Kate and N.P. "Sandy" Dodge have graciously agreed to serve as Honorary Chairs for the 2021 Heroes in the Heartland event to be held on March 9th at 11:45 am.  This event marks the 20th year of honoring our local heroes.  This year's event is being held virtually but remains an event that you won't want to miss.  

The Dodge's were selected due to their commitment to the community as both have served and continue to serve on local boards.  They not only served on those boards but served in leadership capacities as well. 

Both Sandy and Kate agreed to serve as Honorary Chairs because when they think of the Red Cross, they immediately think of the words "Relief" and "Protect" and "Humanitarian".  Whether it is a flood on the Missouri River, a need for blood donations for our hospitals, a military family that needs support or a company that wants its employees trained to do CPR, the Red Cross is there.  And much, much more. 

They shared that while they have always admired the Red Cross, their gratitude for what the organization did for victims of the flooding in 2019 - many of them their employees - brought its value very close to home.  They feel that chairing this event is an honor and gives them the opportunity to thank this amazing organization as it begins its 140th year of existence, stronger than ever.
