The annual “Red Cross Ball” fundraising gala benefits the local disaster relief efforts of the American Red Cross in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The black-tie event includes a cocktail reception, dinner, live music and live and silent auctions.
This year, Richard J. Harshman, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allegheny Technologies Incorporated, will be presented with the Distinguished Leadership Award. This award is presented annually to an individual who, through his or her leadership and charitable pursuits, makes a true difference in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
The event, which will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014, begins at 6 p.m. with a VIP Cocktail Hour. Dinner is served at 7:30 p.m., and the Distinguished Leadership Award is presented at that time.
Proceeds benefit the local disaster relief efforts of the American Red Cross in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The local Red Cross responds to a disaster approximately once per day in the local area, and nearly three times per day in the region, so the need is substantial.
