The Red Cross First Annual Military Ball – April 30

From its birth on the battlefield more than 150 years ago, to supporting troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world, the Red Cross has always had a strong relationship with our military.

Now, the American Red Cross South Florida Region, Gen. Fraser, and Mr. Penn, are honoring that exceptional bond and paying tribute to the men and women who so valiantly have risked their lives for the United States at the First Annual Military Ball on April 30.

“There are many thousands of soldiers, marines, sailors, airmen and coastguardsmen living among us in South Florida, heroes who keep us safe and who fight for the principles of honor and independence that we all hold so dear in our hearts,” said Sam Tidwell, CEO of the American Red Cross South Florida Region. “The American Red Cross is excited to dedicate this night to honoring these valiant men and women.”

Occurring at the end of Fort Lauderdale’s Fleet Week, this event will also host local and visiting military leaders as the South Florida community join together to salute their valiant efforts and honor Mr. E. Roe Stamps IV, this year’s recipient of the Red Cross Humanitarian of the Year Award, the American Red Cross’s highest distinction.

A live, 16-piece Sinatra-style orchestra will entertain guests throughout the evening while they participate in a thrilling auction featuring a 30-minute death-defying flight in an F-16 fighter jet, a cruise courtesy of Celebrity Cruises, or the use of a flight simulator.

Call us today at 954-797-3820 to reserve your seat and to honor our veterans. Tickets cost $300 per person. For ticket information or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Cariann Moore, moorecar@usa.redcross.org.
