On Saturday, March 11 at the historic Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco, over 350 Bay Area community leaders attended the sold out annual Red Cross Gala, “Heroes Among Us,” honoring military service members, veterans and families who have selflessly served and those who are currently serving our nation as well as those who tirelessly support them. One of the four honorees was Major General James M. “Mike” Myatt, President and CEO of Marines Memorial Association and a Trustee and the chairman of the San Francisco’s annual Fleet Week. The signature event raised over $500,000 to support the Red Cross mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering during emergencies, with over $100,000 of that earmarked to specifically support Red Cross Services to the Armed Forces.
