Brave Hearts Virtual Gala
The annual Brave Hearts Gala is going virtual! As the world faces uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Red Cross has made the decision to shift our annual event to an online format.
The virtual Gala will allow us to "gather" and celebrate the strength and resiliency of the Southeast Wisconsin community, while also ensuring that that our donors, volunteers, staff, and attendees are safe.
The Virtual Brave Hearts Gala will include:
