LAS VEGAS -- Wednesday, June 27, 2012 — Shift4 Corporation and the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open are expanding their charity efforts with the announcement of the Who’s Your Hero campaign. If you are a resident of Southern Nevada and have a friend, relative, or neighbor in fire, first response, military, or law enforcement, this campaign is an opportunity for you to tell their story.

“Who’s Your Hero is a way for our fellow Nevadans to join us in saying ‘thank you’ to the men and women in public safety roles who have given such exemplary service,” said Shift4 CEO Dave Oder. “We’re excited to open up our Public Safety Appreciation Station to even more of our local heroes and give them the recognition they deserve.”

To nominate your hero, visit Shift4’s Web site at www.shift4.com/hero between July 1 and July 31 and fill out a short form telling us who your hero is and why. Any active or retired public safety personnel within Southern Nevada are eligible and there is no limit on the number of nominations you may make.

Winners of the campaign will be selected by Shift4 and a panel of local celebrity judges and given VIP treatment at Shift4’s Public Safety Appreciation Station (PSAS) at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Among the perks winners will receive are special seating, catered meals, the chance to meet and mingle with PGA TOUR players, and more.
