HOW "REAL SUPERHEROES" WORKS
Ten "candidates" have been nominated for their dedication to family and community. They help raise awareness of the domestic violence crisis and raise money to help Safe Harbor fund critical services to the Northshore community.
Nominees "sell" votes at a contribution of $10 per vote. The nominee with the most donations to his name will be crowned the "Real Superhero of Safe Harbor 2019" at the Gala. For tickets, to vote, and for information on sponsoring the event, visit the event on Safe Harbor's website.
