It was an evening to recognize Hometown Heroes, those everyday people "who do extraordinary things."

It was also a time when 410 sponsors and supporters gathered for dinner at The Broadmoor and raised more than the final $22,000 for a $150,000 Next Generation Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV) for the American Red Cross of Southeastern Colorado.

The ERV is especially needed for Red Cross immediate response during a busy national and local time of hurricanes, wildfires, mass shootings, structure fires and mobilization of thousands of volunteers, said Executive Director Tom Gonzalez.

The Hometown Heroes had been introduced in stories in The Gazette.
