Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Air and Sea Show has been cancelled over Memorial Day weekend.
However, while announcing the postponement, the National Salute to America’s Heroes and Hyundai introduced a community-based nomination initiative that will recognize local healthcare professionals, first responders and others who are tirelessly fighting and risking their own safety to care for members of the local community.
“As we align with recommendations and guidelines from local, state and global agencies, it was prudent to cancel the 2020 Hyundai Air and Sea Show,” said Mickey Markoff, executive producer of The National Salute to America’s Heroes, presented by Hyundai.
“Given the regional and national concerns about COVID-19, we want to do what is best for the community at this time.”
The mission of the Salute 365 Network is to connect thoughtful Americans and their patriotic corporate sponsors with national heroes, paying tribute to them by providing recognition, encouragement, and support. Beginning immediately, NSAH is looking for nominations for four heroes who will be awarded new Hyundai Sonatas as recognition for their outstanding service.
The NSAH will select winners in each of the following categories: healthcare professional; first responder; unsung community heroes, and present them with a 2020 Hyundai Sonata on Memorial Day.
“Because our show is so closely connected with Memorial Day, we think it’s fitting to pay tribute on that day to the deserving members of our community who are on the front lines fighting against this world-wide pandemic and express our appreciation and gratitude for their service,” added Markoff.
National Salute to America’s Heroes, located 10394 W Sample Road in Coral Springs is accepting nominations starting on April 15 – midnight on May 15, 2020.
The delivery of the cars will be a surprise, so they will need your help. Submit your nominee here. The National Salute to America’s Heroes
