The “Greatest Heroes On Earth” Recognition Ceremony will be followed by a real treat as 10 of these local heroes will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help bathe one of our treasured Ringling Bros. Asian Elephants right on Wall Street.

In addition, Feld Entertainment has set aside 1,000 complimentary Circus tickets for the impacted families and First Responders to the SR530 Slide.
