We are happy to announce that we will recognize the true, yet often anonymous, Tri-Valley Heroes this holiday season through a series of feature articles honoring eight individuals or groups for their positive influence on the Tri-Valley and the lives of its residents. We will feature two Heroes each week beginning Nov. 23 and concluding Dec. 14.
We want to recognize those individuals, groups or organizations that stand out because of their actions, integrity or honor, whether that hero is a firefighter who rescues a child from a burning house, the girl who is courageously battling leukemia, the business that allows its employees to mentor teens for an hour a week, or the neighborhood group that cleans up the creek.
Awards will be given in the following categories: Arts and Culture, Community Spirit, Courage, Environmental Stewardship, Innovation, Rising Star and Role Model. The Lifetime Achievement award will recognize an individual or group for contributions, leadership, enthusiasm and tireless efforts on behalf of his or her community, county and neighbors.
We are calling for nominations. This awards program is being conducted in all four Embarcadero Media East Bay divisions, which include the Pleasanton Weekly, Dublin TriValley Views, Danville Express and San Ramon Express. Individuals who work or live in Pleasanton, Dublin, San Ramon, Danville, Blackhawk or Alamo are eligible, as are businesses located in these areas.
If you know a person, organization or group deserving of recognition, complete the form at http://tinyurl.com/Tri-ValleyHeroes. Nominations can also be emailed directly to gallen@EmbarcaderoMediaGroup.com, but make sure all the information requested on the form is included. Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. Oct. 15.
We are also looking for sponsors for the program and for the individual awards. Any individual or group can sponsor. Please contact me directly at gallen@EmbarcaderoMediaGroup.com or call 600-0840, ext. 119, for information.
We hope you find this opportunity to recognize the unsung Tri-Valley Heroes as exciting as we do!
