The American Red Cross Northwestern Pennsylvania Chapter hosted the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership Business After Hours reception at the Red Cross Chapter Office in Erie on Thursday, January 19. Well over 200 people attended the event, which served as the kick-off to the Red Cross Centennial Celebration, marking 100 years of service to the Erie community.
“We are so proud to be a member of the Chamber and are happy to be able to host this wonderful event in our office,” noted Red Cross Northwestern Pennsylvania Chapter Executive Director Pam Masi. “As we enter into our centennial year, this event enables us to showcase the great work our volunteers do each and every day throughout the local community.”
The event gave Chamber members the chance to network with one another while learning more about the Red Cross. Opportunities to be trained in Hands-Only CPR highlighted the evening.
Masi added, “You never know when you might be called upon to help save a person’s life. Everyone should learn Hands-Only CPR, and we are glad we were able to offer it to our guests during the reception.”
