As Philadelphia’s Premier Party and best black-tie charity gala, Red Ball hosted by the American Red Cross takes place on Saturday, March 30th at 8 pm and will include live entertainment, a silent auction, 30 restaurants offering delicious samplings and unique bars options and so much more!
Join us once again at Philadelphia’s own Lincoln Financial Field, home of the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles! You won’t want to miss this opportunity to support the Red Cross while dancing the night away to live music by CTO banks from Tribeca and Midtown while enjoying drinks and bites from some of your favorite local restaurants. The VIP lounge will feature the jazz sounds of Gerald Veasley. His musical odyssey has taken him to the top of the contemporary music world as a bassist, bandleader, composer, producer, educator, and curator. His performance as a six-string bassist has been top shelf, as his extensive body of work attests. Veasley has recorded or performed with many of the world’s top artists in Jazz, R&B and Gospel.
