WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (June 25, 2010) — The life-saving accomplishments of 13 area residents were celebrated at the 9th Annual American Red Cross Real Heroes Awards & Luncheon on Wednesday, June 23 at the Kravis Center. The luncheon honored professional rescuers, law enforcement officials, upstanding youth and quick-thinking bystanders who were nominated by members of the community for their heroic achievements in 10 categories. Over 250 guests in attendance showed their support including West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel, Jupiter Vice Mayor Wendy Harrison, Sunny 104.3 Radio Host Rick Shockley, and WPBF 25 News Anchor Tiffany Kenney, who emceed the event.

  

Herme de Wyman Miro accepted her Real Hero Honoree Award from West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel. After Mrs. Miro’s long list of charitable involvements and deeds were highlighted, Mayor Frankel smiled and said, “I’m thinking, maybe you would like to be mayor of West Palm Beach.” Mrs. Miro laughed, “No, I don’t think I set the world on fire but in my own little way, I did as much as I could.” Mrs. Miro, who founded the International Society of Palm Beach which has distributed over 1,750 grants and scholarships to worthy charities totaling over $3 million, added, “It’s my duty, it’s something you have to do.”

 

Joined by community officials, the following individuals were also named 2010 Red Cross Real Heroes: Esther Alfred, Delray Beach, Good Samaritan Award; Luis Bermudez, Delray Beach, Good Samaritan Youth Award; Maggie Harris, Boca Raton, Animal Rescue Award; Dr. Litzrudy Justinvil, Miami, Educator Award; Travis Keene, Lantana, Law Enforcement Award; Frank J. Kitzerow, Jupiter, Special Recognition Award, Dan Lund, Port St. Lucie, Medical Award; Barron Miller, Port St. Lucie, Law Enforcement Award; Keith Monz, West Palm Beach, Marine Rescue Award; Matthew Porter, West Palm Beach, Marine Rescue Award; Craig Prusansky, Weirsdale, Fire Rescue Award; and Anais Roque, West Palm Beach, Marine Rescue Award.

 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Color Guard kicked-off the luncheon followed by the singing of the National Anthem by vocalist Lou Galterio. One by one, the heroic acts of each award winner was celebrated with a special feature story produced by WPBF 25 News. Each award recipient was then met on stage with a Real Hero plaque and applause that expressed messages of congratulations, appreciation and gratitude. When accepting their awards, each Real Hero spoke of others that helped them accomplish great deeds and thanked the American Red Cross and those in attendance for recognizing their efforts. Created in 2002, the Real Hero Award honors individuals who exemplify the long-standing mission of the American Red Cross to respond to emergencies and provide relief to victims of disasters.

 

Others who attended the event were Billie and Lou Feher; vocalist Lou Galterio; WPBF 25 News Director Kyle Grimes; Red Cross CEO Rob Levine; Terri Mersentes; Frank and Geri Morrow; Rabbi Moishe Scheiner; and representatives from Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Jupiter Police Department, and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue. Sponsors who helped make the 9th Annual Real Hero Awards & Luncheon possible include WPBF 25 News, The Palm Beach Post, Sunny 104.3, Flavor Palm Beach, Herme de Wyman Miro, Dex Imaging, Publix Super Markets Charities, and Flower Kingdom.
