Special Events

Each year the American Red Cross in Eastern Pennsylvania conducts a number of signature events throughout the Philadelphia region that would not be possible without the generous support of our community sponsors. These events enable us to deliver help and hope to those affected by disaster in our local community. Your organization can help too by sponsoring one or more of our signature events.

Spectrum Awards Breakfast

Recognizing the important role women play in global commerce and humanitarian initiatives, the annual Spectrum Awards highlights the incredible leadership that women bring to our community. The 2016 Spectrum Awards will be held on November 10, 2016 at the Union League and will recognize and celebrate the achievements of four women who have distinguished themselves as corporate and community leaders making outstanding contributions to help improve the quality of life in our community.

Citizen of the Year

For the past 30 years the annual Citizen of the Year Breakfast has celebrated an individual and organization’s commitment to our region’s civic and charitable initiatives. Right here in Philadelphia, the American Red Cross touches the lives of two out of three people every day with life-saving services. It is only fitting to honor a Philadelphia citizen who has made a significant impact on the welfare of the Greater Philadelphia region.
