The Portland Winterhawks are proud to partner with the Oregon Army National Guard and Seabee Construction to honor our Winterhawks Hometown Heroes.
Through the Hometown Heroes program your Portland Winterhawks will honor a local hero during each of the 34 regular season home games of the 2023-24 season. Nominees can be anyone from veterans to firefighters, doctors, nurses, police officers, educators, or anyone whose dedication and sacrifice make an impact in the community.
The honoree will receive free tickets to the game of their choice, a merchandise prize pack, and an in-game announcement where the Winterhawks Hometown Hero will be recognized for their contributions to the betterment of society and to the city of Portland.
How to nominate a Hometown Hero:
- Provide contact information for yourself and the person you picked as a Hometown Hero.
- Give a brief description of why the nominee should be selected as a Hometown Hero.
- Select up to three game dates where the Hometown Hero nominee will be available.
Hero of the Night Nominations
If selected you will be asked to provide a photo of the recognized hero nominee. The photo will be presented on the Video Board during the game the Hometown Hero is selected for. Participants will be honored at a game of honorees’ choice. If you are unable to attend any of these date available dates the Portland Winterhawks will still honor the Hometown Hero of the Night through an in-stadium announcement.
Your thoughtful nominations are appreciated, and we’re excited that this collaboration through Oregon Army National Guard and Seabee Construction is making the Winterhawks Hometown Hero a well-deserved and honorable tradition.
