The Red Ball Presented by AmeriHealth Caritas and Independence Blue Cross


“Party with a purpose” when you attend this one of a kind gala at the Please Touch Museum at Memorial Hall. Dancing, live entertainment, raffles, and a unique restaurant competition are just some of the experiences that guests will be able to enjoy.

All funds raised support the Red Cross House – Center for Disaster Recovery and local disaster relief. For more information about Red Cross House, click here.


Once again this year, the VIP Lounge will be held on the lower level of Memorial Hall and will have its own entrance complete with complimentary valet parking. Guests will be immersed in an exciting Chinese New Year themed experience featuring fabulous Chinese cuisine by Susanna Foo and special Chinese entertainment. VIP guests will also enjoy private top-shelf open bar and a cigar bar.


Main Event guests will dance the night away to CTO Band in the ballroom. Since our very first Red Ball, the CTO Band has rocked the house and filled the dance floor.
