Pixs: Red Ball 2015 – Red Hot Fun and Lots of Dancing for a Good Cause

It goes without saying that the Red Cross Ball is a great big party, for a good cause and raises it’s profile to a much larger audience than the people they serve.

This year I had a wrinkle in my plans on Red Cross Gala night, my client E-Moderne Gallerie change the date of the opening of their latest exhibit from Friday night to Saturday night, plus I had a another gig in Old City at 10PM, so it didn’t leave me much time to cover the Red Ball.
 In a last minute change I headed to the Jewish National Museum’s Purim celebration early and was able to get all the photos I needed for my columns and head out of there by 1030PM.
Just enough time to catch the last hour, the best hour of the red hot party at the Please Touch Museum.
 I was wondering who would be left – and lo and behold I ran into my friend Councilwomen Blondell Reynolds Brown and Friends.

Chapter. All proceeds from Red Ball benefit Red Cross disaster relief
and one of Philadelphia’s greatest community assets, Red Cross House, a
short-term residence for disaster victims in West Philadelphia (the only
one of its kind in the country). More than 1,000 families stayed at the
Red Cross House last year.

 Craig Robinson getting down to CTO entertainment on the dance floor. Craig is co-chair for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention which is honoring me 11/14/15 – so SAVE THE DATE. I’ll be asking for donations and sponsorships for the event, so that we may save some lives. (I’m very honored to be recognized for the work I’ve done to raise awareness to this very important cause. My email is if you’d like to help out.)

OMG I asked Craig at least 5 times in the past few days what her name was, and I can’t remember. I do recall him saying, isn’t she a stunner. I’d have to agree. The Bachelor Craig Robinson.
