The 54th Annual International Red Cross Ball

White-Tie and Tiara Affair to be Chaired by Prominent Local Residents

PALM BEACH, Fla. -  The 54th Annual International Red Cross Ball, to be held on January 29 at The Mar-a-Lago Club, will be hosted by General Chairman Michele Kessler and Co-Chairmen Susan Keenan and
Mary Mochary
.  This year’s Honorary Chairman is Patrick Park.


Considered by many to be a highlight of the Palm Beach social season, the white-tie and tiara affair will continue the tradition of advancing the nearly 100-year history of the local American Red Cross of providing shelter, food and counsel to victims of disasters, teaching lifesaving skills such as CPR and First Aid, and supporting military members and their families.


“The International Red Cross Ball has a rich history in Palm Beach and is recognized the world over for its support of such a deserving cause, the American Red Cross.  The Red Cross provides a critical service to our local community and around the world every day; including the organizations Measles Initiative to which I am proud to serve as Global Ambassador” said Michele Kessler, Chairman of the 54th International Red Cross Ball.


The 2011 event will welcome ambassadors, dignitaries, government, civic and philanthropic leaders from around the world who support the American Red Cross. A reception for the distinguished guests will be held at Howard and Michele Kessler’s home in Palm Beach on January 28. UBS Palm Beach Wealth Group is the benefactor of the Ambassadors’ Dinner. Grand Corporate Patrons of the Ball include A.R.T Worth Avenue, Braman Motorcars, Gunster, and Microsoft.


Michele Kessler is actively involved with the American Red Cross and serves as a Global Ambassador of the non-profit’s Measles Initiative, which provides life-saving resources including measles vaccinations to children around the world. In addition to serving as Director of Community Relations at The Kessler Group and the Co-Founder and Director of the Kessler Family Foundation, she is a Trustee of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Foundation, where she also serves as a member of the hospital’s Women’s Health Leadership Forum. She is the co-chair of the Massachusetts General Hospital's Leadership Council for Psychiatry. She currently serves on the board of directors of the United Way of the Town of Palm Beach; the William J. Clinton Foundation; The American Ireland Fund; the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach; the Palm Beach Civic Association; and the American Cancer Society of Palm Beach. She is an overseer of the Boys and Girls Club of Boston and Babson College.
