Sponsor an Event

As with all American Red Cross operations, our annual events would not be possible without the generous support from our community. There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available for the different events held by the American Red Cross of San Diego/Imperial Counties.
For more information about event sponsorship opportunities, please contact Megan Blanek, Events Specialist, at Megan.Blanek@redcross.org or (858) 309-1267.


Disaster Preparedness Academy

A full-day workshop designed to improve business resiliency in our community, the Disaster Preparedness Academy is an opportunity to learn preparedness from the experts. Along with the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, join the Red Cross as an attendee, exhibitor, or underwriter.


Real Heroes Breakfast

There are everyday heroes among us who inspire us by their actions, compassion, and dedication to serving others. The Real Heroes Breakfast is a community celebration that honors citizens in San Diego and Imperial Counties who have made a difference in their communities through individual acts of courage. Join us each year in celebration and nominate.


Shelter of Hope

Every 24 hours the Red Cross responds to a house fire or other type of disaster right here in San Diego and Imperial Counties, providing help and hope to families in crisis. Sponsorship of the Shelter of Hope brings much needed funds, awareness, and visibility for Red Cross services in our community.
