March 17 & 18 - Harlem Globetrotters

Washington, DC -  Harlem Globetrotters

Team up with us for the Great Assist!

The American Red Cross is entering the second season as the official charity of the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters! Through this partnership, the Red Cross has been invited by the Harlem Globetrotters to join forces under the team’s Great Assist initiative to help communities across America prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters big and small.

Last year, we raised $260,000 nationally for disaster relief with $15,000 raised locally here in the National Capital Region!

Throughout the partnership, the Harlem Globetrotters will join the Red Cross in advancing the charity’s mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Join us this year for a Globetrotters’ show, featuring entertaining, amazing basketball skills and wizardry!
