The American Red Cross Ball has been established as one of South Floridas premier and most prestigious social fundraising events. 2016 marks the 34th year of the American Red Cross Ball which was started in 1982 by a group of socially prominent women volunteers. Their tradition continues today with a committee of dedicated women who work tirelessly toward fulfilling the mission of the American Red Cross. Attended by prominent and dynamic leaders of the South Florida social and corporate communities, the Red Cross Ball has consistently been the most successful fundraising event in raising much needed funds for the vital life-saving programs and services of the American Red Cross Greater Miami & the Keys. This upscale evening gets under way with a cocktail reception at 7 p.m., followed by dinner at 8:30 p.m. Guests will enjoy exquisite food, elegant dÃ©cor, music and dancing. This year’s Red Cross Ball chairs are Linda Levy Goldberg and Sid Goldberg, known for their philanthropic support and achievements throughout our community. Individual tickets are $600.
