The American Red Cross hosted the annual Red Cross Ball at Pittsburgh’s Omni William Penn Hotel on Saturday, April 6, 2019. Nearly 200 people attended the event, which featured the presentation of this year’s Distinguished Leadership Award to DICK’S Sporting Goods for the large and lasting impact they have had in Southwestern Pennsylvania and throughout the United States through their community leadership and charitable pursuits.
Silent and live auctions, a cocktail reception, dinner, and dancing made for an unforgettable evening. Michelle Wright, WTAE-TV News Anchor, served as this year’s emcee.
Money raised from the event will be used to support the many programs and services offered by the Red Cross throughout the area.
Lead Sponsors of the 2019 Red Cross Ball include DICK’S Sporting Goods, PNC, UPMC, Deloitte, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, KPMG, Fox Rothschild LLP, Pitt, Koppers, and DXC Technology. Other contributors include Highmark, Morgan Lewis, and the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania.
