The Kansas City Region of the American Red Cross holds several special events each year, and they give our region’s chapters a way to celebrate our donors and volunteers and raise money to continue our work in the community.
Now in its sixth year, the annual Red Ball gala has generated more than $1.5 million for the Greater Kansas City Chapter. Our guests dine on the finest local dishes and dance to bands such as The Bacon Brothers, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
Since its founding in 2000, the Genevieve Byrne Speaker Series has become one of the premier political speaking engagements in the tri-state area and has raised more than $2.5 million for the Greater Kansas City Chapter.
Participants in the Red Cross Golf Classic hit the greens on Dub’s Dread Golf Club historic 18-hole course in Kansas City, Kan. Held in May, the classic offers 18 holes, breakfast, lunch, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
The Red Cross Heroes Campaign honors those volunteers and donors who have made the work of the Red Cross possible. It also recognizes the men and women of our local fire departments and emergency management offices who work tirelessly to keep us safe in our community.
