The North Central San Mateo Community Wellness Initiative will host the 3rd Annual "Everyday Heroes" reception on Thursday, June 28th, 2012, from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm at the Martin Luther King Center in San Mateo.
The 2012 honorees have worked selflessly to improve the lives of others and create a safe and thriving neighborhood. Nominated by the community of North Central San Mateo, they are Ruby Kaho (Partnership Hero), Bennie Shannon & Joshua Hugg (Sunshine Neighbor Heroes), Allen Haysbert (Prevention Hero), Eric Waldorf (Merchant Hero), and Timothy Niupalau (Youth Hero).
"We are so excited to be able to honor people who don't often receive the recognition they deserve. Every day these unsung heroes engage in work that has a positive effect in North Central San Mateo, and they do it without expecting anything in return," says Michelle Vilchez, Executive Director of Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center.
The "Everyday Heroes" reception is open to the public. Spanish interpretation services and childcare will be provided. For more information, please contact Malissa Netane at email@example.com or 650-513-0330 x310.
