We’re back and better than ever! After two years away we can’t wait to be together with you to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Red Ball on Saturday, April 2, 2022 from 7 p.m. to midnight.
The lifesaving work of the American Red Cross hasn’t stopped, and we need your support now more than ever. Red Ball helps the Red Cross of Southeastern Pennsylvania respond to disasters and provide care and comfort to the families affected.
Red Ball 2022 is at an all-new location. We’re thrilled to be moving up Broad Street to the heart of Philadelphia, between Center City and Fairmount. The American Red Cross will host Red Ball at Vie, located at 600 N. Broad Street, on Saturday, April 2, 2022, starting at 7 p.m. Valet parking is complimentary.
Red Ball is a reception style gala. It’s elegance without the long sit-down dinner! Guests will enjoy passed hors d’oeuvres and fabulous food stations including a chilled seafood bar and top shelf open bar throughout the evening. Other food stations themes include East Asian, Mediterranean and Mexican, as well as a surf-n-turf slider station and fry bar. The evening will finish with a dessert station and espresso bar.
Red Ball will have two rotating bands courtesy of CTO Artists to keep the live music going and dance floor jumping all night. Enjoy the sounds of both Tribeca and 5th Avenue. We’ll have an outdoor cigar bar where guests can enjoy time under the stars (with heat lamps if it’s chilly) and keep an eye on the college basketball action. Bid on fabulous items, tickets to games, events and shows and other experiences in our silent auction. And of course, the photo booth will be back along with other fun and exciting features!
Red Ball is a formal, black-tie invited, gala. Guests are encouraged to wear red to show their support for the American Red Cross. For more photos and fashion ideas, check out our photo albums from past events:
Katie Fehlinger is back as host and emcee for Red Ball 2022. The author and former CBS3 weather anchor will walk Red Ball guests through the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross and share the story of the Red Cross House in Philadelphia, and how vital a piece of the community it is. We’ll need your support again to keep the mission going another year. You can read more about Katie here.
Red Ball helps fund the Red Cross disaster response throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania. The Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides comfort after disasters; supplies about 40% of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members, veterans and their families.
Your support of Red Ball also provides funding for the operation of the Red Cross House – The Center for Disaster Recovery – in Philadelphia. The Red Cross House provides housing and recovery services for disaster survivors in our region. Over the past two decades, the Red Cross House has provided a safe place to stay, hot meals and support services to thousands of families rebuilding their lives after a disaster.
