D.J.'s Hero Awards Lunch set for Monday, May 14th

The Salvation Army's annual D.J.’s Hero Awards Luncheon happens Monday, May 14th.

Steve George, Chairperson for the event, says there are three goals of the event. One is to raise money for the Salvation Army’s programs. Another is to award scholarships to high school seniors who have overcome hardships in their lives, and the third is to feature a dynamic speaker. This year’s luncheon will be held at the Century Link Center.  George says there will be two guest speakers, Bob and Lee Woodruff.

"He was a co-anchor of ABC’s World News Tonight and had been an international correspondent for many years. He was embedded with the troops on a news story in Iraq and unfortunately was hit by a roadside bomb that almost ended his life.  And so Bob and his wife speak about this huge crisis in their life and how they overcame tremendous odds to recover from that.”

The 2012 Salvation Army D.J.’s Heroes Award Lunch takes place at 11:45 next Monday.
