EVENT CANCELED - AN IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM THE RED CROSS:
In light of the growing concerns and the fact that the World Health Organization has now declared the coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic, the American Red Cross has reluctantly decided to cancel our 38th Annual Red Cross Ball on April 18.
Our first concern is the health and safety of our guests and as well as our employees and volunteers. We will be hosting the Ball again next Spring and will keep you updated as our plans progress.
The American Red Cross is closely monitoring this evolving situation and stands ready to aid response and preparedness efforts. Please review this information update https://rdcrss.org/2vlnFVu which provides a brief overview of Red Cross response work so far, both overseas and here at home. It also shares precautions we are taking to protect the blood supply, collection staff, and blood donors, as well as common sense safety tips and emergency preparedness actions you can take now to help protect you and your family.

As we watch the unfolding of the effects of coronavirus around the world, we offer our condolences to its many victims and our gratitude to the thousands of health care workers fighting its spread.
We apologize for the inconvenience and greatly appreciate your patience and understanding.
