KDKA looking for local heroes in the community


Last updated 1/1/2013 at 1:54pm

NewsRadio 1020 KDKA and Larry Richert are looking to identify five local men or women and honor them for their service to the community.

They’re looking to the public to identify these individuals who stand out through acts or services within or for their communities that may otherwise go unrecognized. Five heroes will be honored at a dinner on March 7 at the Lexus Club at PNC Park.

Each hero will also receive $1000 to donate to a 501(C)(3) charity of their choice.

“These are people who you may not have heard about in the news,” says KDKA host Richert. “We’re looking for people who do what they do without expecting recognition. These are your friends and neighbors who may have changed a life or lives with a simple act …or something they may do on a daily basis.”

Ticket sales to the dinner will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. The deadline to nominate someone is January 18, 2013. For more information and for the nomination criteria and form visit
