[NOV. 30, 2023] — The Tiffany Circle of the American Red Cross Kansas and Oklahoma Region is proud to host a virtual event, “Cocktails & Conversations” with guest speaker Dorris Heaston, on Dec. 7 at 4 p.m.
This new event aims to give people across our two-state region a shared experience while learning more about the Red Cross’ past, present and future.
Heaston was one of the Red Cross “Donut Dollies,” hundreds of female American Red Cross workers deployed to Vietnam to provide support and a sympathetic ear to millions of U.S. service members. Heaston went overseas straight out of college at 22 years old.
This free, one-hour discussion is a rare opportunity for people to hear from one of these remarkable women about her compelling journey and the significance of her work. Discover why Heaston is driven to ensure the stories of the Donut Dollies endure.
Participants will also come together making and then enjoying a featured cocktail or mocktail while listening to Heaston’s story. Heaston’s favorite, the Golden Cadillac, is the featured cocktail. For those who prefer not to drink, there’s a chocolate martini mocktail.
RSVP for this free event at rdcrss.org/3T7lQnp, or email email@example.com. You'll then receive the drink recipes and the Microsoft Teams link.
