The American Red Cross Southeastern Pennsylvania (SEPA) Chapter will host its 11th Annual Red Ball, presented by ModSpace, on Saturday, March 5, 2011 from 8 p.m. to 12 midnight at the Please Touch Museum at Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park.
The modular space company ModSpace, headquartered in Berwyn, PA is this year’s title sponsor. This is the first time, in the 11 year history of the Red Ball, that the gala has had a title sponsor.
ModSpace, is a leading provider of temporary and permanent building solutions. “ModSpace has been a great partner of the American Red Cross for a long time,” said American Red Cross Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter interim CEO Donna Palmieri. “Modspace’s Red Ball title sponsorship will help a lot of people who’ve been affected by a disaster in our region.”
“The Red Ball is a great event for a great cause,” says ModSpace President and CEO Charles Paquin. “We’re proud to support the Red Cross of Southeastern Pennsylvania and their continued efforts to help victims of disaster through Red Cross House. Having provided temporary buildings for emergency relief in the days and months after Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti, we understand that recovery begins with care, support, and roof over your head.”
The Red Ball is one of Philadelphia’s hottest events. Guests at this red-tie event will sample culinary delights prepared by Philadelphia’s best chefs, dance the night away with entertainment provided by CTO World Entertainment Productions, enjoy access to the museum’s exhibits, mingle with Philadelphia’s social and business leaders, test their luck in the raffle and learn more about the mission of the Red Cross and the everyday work of its volunteers. Actor Vin Diesel is among the celebrities scheduled to attend.
VIP ticket holders will enjoy an all-access evening, beginning at 8 p.m. in the exclusive VIP Lounge, featuring Max & Me Catering. Other amenities include VIP express entry, private top-shelf open bar, cigar bar, separate coat check and a special VIP gift.
All proceeds from The Red Ball benefit the Red Cross House, a one-of-a-kind short-term housing facility in West Philadelphia where hundreds of local families every year begin their recovery from fires, floods, and other disasters.
