This red–tie gala, held at the Please Touch Museum, is attended by more than 1,200 of Greater Philadelphia’s social community and business leaders. All proceeds from the Red Ball will benefit one of Philadelphia’s greatest community assets-THE RED CROSS HOUSE. The short-term residence for disaster victims located in West Philadelphia; is the only one of its kind in the country.
This year our goal is to raise $300,000 to help the hundreds of our fellow neighbors served by The Red Cross House and Red Cross Disaster Relief. Your participation can demonstrate, in a tangible way, your community commitment and good will.
The American Red Cross is not a government agency; we rely on donations of time, money and blood to do our work. Funds raised from this event will directly support the American Red Cross of Pennsylvania's mission of preventing, preparing for and responding to natural and human-caused disasters.
