socialheroesbudThe Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman and Katcef Brothers, Inc., are pleased to announce the return of the Budweiser Who’s Your Hero? promotion which will run through December leading up to the Military Bowl on Tuesday, Dec. 27.

The program, which has been extremely popular leading up to Military Bowl in each of the past two years, invites members of the public to visit militarybowl.org/budheroes to share stories about the everyday Heroes in their own lives. Five Heroes and the person nominating them will be selected to receive a VIP Military Bowl package including participation in the Military Bowl Parade, pregame hospitality, game tickets, in-game recognition and postgame field passes.

To nominate a Hero on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, share a photo or video using the hashtag #BudHeroes. Heroes can also be nominated at local bars, restaurants and other participating Budweiser retailers in Annapolis and Washington areas. A list of Who’s Your Hero? events and participating locations is listed at militarybowl.org/budheroes.

Who’s Your Hero? has been such a remarkable promotion,” Military Bowl President & Executive Director Steve Beck said. “We are continually inspired by the men and women who are nominated as Heroes and look forward to the opportunity to recognize several of them on gameday so that we can let them know how special they are.”
