The Heart of Tennessee Chapter will be hosting their Inaugural Heroes Luncheon on Wednesday, February 6th at noon at the Doubletree Hotel on Old Fort Parkway. The event will honor Bob Mifflin, Executive Director of The Christy-Houston Foundation, as the Red Cross “Hero of the Year”.
“We are so thrilled to have the support of all of our community sponsors and to be able to highlight the efforts of Bob Mifflin, as he has been a wonderful friend to the Red Cross and a pillar of community service in Rutherford County for many years,” said Chapter Executive, Mike Cowles.
