Supporters were able to greet all of the visiting dignitaries, event chairs, and the Chairman of the National American Red Cross, Bonnie McElveen-Hunter, through a formal receiving line. Guests mingled poolside, enjoying cocktails and hors d'oeuvres before the sound of trumpeters signified the transition into the Grand Ballroom.  Once inside, the United States Marine Corps. 4th ANGLICO conducted a formal presentation of the colors, followed by introductions of all distinguished guests.  Once all were seated, a formal welcome was given by Chairman Michele Kessler and National American Red Cross Chairman, Bonnie McElveen-Hunter.  Jimmy Vali provided enchanting music as guests dined in the splendid ballroom and Vic Damone wooed the crowd with romantic tunes post-dinner, which inspired people to take to the dance floor. Everyone danced well into the night.


The International Red Cross Ball provides a yearly opportunity for guests from across the globe to support the American Red Cross, including the organizations emergency preparedness and disaster relief efforts across the world. Notably, the distinguished ambassadors in attendance included Ambassador of Liechtenstein Claudia Fritsche, Ambassador of Monaco and Mrs. Gilles Noghes, Ambassador of Mexico and Mrs. Arturo Sarukhan, Ambassador of Netherlands Renee Jones-Bos and Dr. Richard Jones-Bos, Ambassador of Barbados and Mrs. John Beale, Ambassador of South Africa and Mrs. Ebrahim Rasool and Ambassador of Hungary Gyorgy Szapary.
