The Engelland’s Vegas Born Heroes Foundation to honor community heroes was introduced by Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Deryk Engelland and his family introduced today.

“My family and I wanted to create this foundation to recognize the incredible men and women who work to better our community every day,” said Deryk Engelland. “I’m honored to do a small part in thanking them for their contributions.”

The foundation's mission is to recognize and reward charities and individual community members who give back to others to help the Las Vegas community. The Engellands will pick 20 community heroes to attend a Vegas Golden Knights game and receive a Golden Knights jersey and Vegas Born Hero shirt.

Nominations are being accepted through September 25 by emailing  Engosheroesnomination@gmail.com . More information is available at @EngosHeroes on Twitter.
