[Press Release] The 2018 Red Cross Ball

by | Nov 23, 2017 | News | 0 comments

The Committee for the 46th Annual Red Cross Ball announces that planning is underway for the signature formal event of the 2018 calendar. Under the patronage of Her Excellency Dame Marguerite Pindling, GCMG, Governor-General of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas, the Ball will be held Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 7pm at the Baha Mar Convention Centre, Cable Beach.

The Ball is the Bahamas Red Cross’ largest annual benefit and has provided considerable funding to assist the Society in fulfilling its mandate of ‘alleviating human suffering wherever it may be found’.

“Over the last three years, there have been varying levels of devastation experienced in The Bahamas – be it from natural disasters or economic fallout,” said Craig Tony Gomez, President Bahamas Red Cross Society. “As a result, the doors of the Bahamas Red Cross have been open and used as refuge and resource for many more persons across the archipelago and in some instances for extended periods. The proceeds from the Ball go directly to those in greatest need.”

It was this very reason that the committee selected Code Red as its theme.

“While the mood of the evening will be festive and celebratory, we thought it necessary to couple that with the more serious, emergency response role the Bahamas Red Cross plays and the all-hands-on-deck approach we make,” said Caroline Turnquest, Director General of the Bahamas Red Cross Society.

Following a scrumptious plated meal, those glammed in the splendor of the evening will have no shortage of entertainment as guests will be soothed by the sounds of the Royal Bahamas Police Force Pop Band during cocktails followed by the Lou Adams Orchestra, Jamz Session, and dancing the night away with the Visage Band. Patrons will bid on luxury items including airfare, resort packages, excursions and fine dining in hopes of winning the opportunity to visit destinations in The Bahamas; all part of the ‘staycation’ themed silent auction. There will also be an in-house raffle along with various door prizes.

“We’re looking to corporate Bahamas to show their usual support and our aim is to make this an oversold event,” said Cyndi Williams-Rahming, Board Member, Fundraising and Ball Committee Chair.

Individual tickets for this black-tie event are $275.
Those wishing to purchase Platinum, Gold or General tables, may contact the
Bahamas Red Cross Society on JFK Drive at 323-7370.
