Yesterday’s annual Local Heroes Screening and Awards just stood out. You just can’t be hard-hearted or cynical when confronted by the selfless behavior and greater vision of these folks. Need to thaw that attitude and get inspired? Make sure you catch the individual videos and the highlights of their stories as we feature the good works of these fine citizens who are our neighbors this week and throughout May in our Local Heroes series. Here’s a link to our program schedule where you can watch the Heroes either via Comcast or AT&T at home on TV or streaming on our website. They will also be available VOD soon as well right from our website.
We are delighted that Palo Alto Patch picked up the story. Here’s a link to the article written by Philip Spiegel. Thank you Philip!
And finally here are some wonderful pictures from yesterday’s festivities. Put this event on the calendar for next year! Don’t miss a chance to meet real life heroes and shake their hands.
