The American Red Cross Ball is one of South Floridaâ€™s most prestigious social fundraising events. This year marks the 32nd 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 for the Red Cross South Florida Region. This upscale evening, featuring exquisite food, elegant decor, music and dancing, gets under way with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner at 8:30 p.m. Chairs are Jose & Barbara Hevia. Individual tickets are $600. For more info contact Kenia Tedesco at 305-728-2512 or Kenia.Tedesco@RedCross.org.
