The 2017 hurricane season was among the top 10 all-time most active seasons on record. Hurricanes Maria, Harvey, and Irma left millions without food and shelter, displaced from their homes, separated from their families, and in the most devastating of cases, lost their lives. In the face of this great devastation, the Red Cross has been there. Like a hurricane, heroes from all over rushed to the affected areas, heading straight into the storm to provide care, shelter, and hope to those affected.

The 2018 Community Impact Award will be presented to individuals, companies, and foundations who supported the Red Cross with time, manpower, and funding during this devastating hurricane season.

Proceeds raised through the American Red Cross Heroes Ball help to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies. We do this by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in our humanitarian services and programs.
