NOMINATE A 2019 HERO: The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival will honor local Heroes at its annual Tribute to Heroes Dinner on Thursday, June 20, 2019 at The Hotel at Kirkwood.
Do you know a Hero—someone who has saved a life, made our community a safer place or gone above and beyond to help someone in need? Each year, the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival awards local heroes who have made positive differences in their communities. These Heroes are recognized at the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival’s Tribute to Heroes Dinner.
The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival needs your help! Nominate your hero or someone who has made positive contributions to our community. Hero nominees may be a friend or family member, a neighbor, a co-worker—anyone you know who has had an impact upon you or someone else.
Many citizens show their heroism through extraordinary service, courage, compassion and perseverance. The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival would like to recognize the men and women of our community who serve as extraordinary role models!
Those who are honored as 2019 Heroes will be contacted via phone by the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival staff. They will be our guests, receive recognition, and an award at the Tribute to Heroes Dinner on Thursday, June 20, 2019. Each honoree will receive a $250.00 donation to a charity of choice. Additionally, the honorees will act as Grand Marshals for the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival Parade on Saturday, June 29, 2019.
Nomination forms must be returned to the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival, 609 1st Ave SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52405, postmarked no later than Friday March 9, 2019.
