The 3rd annual Red Cross Red Carpet Soiree takes place at Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar once again on May 6th. This fundraiser supports the Canadian Red Cross and in particular the Lower Mainland Disaster Management Program.
May 8th marks World Red Cross Day, which is celebrated internationally every year since 1948. This year, we commemorate World Red Cross Day by highlighting the local Red Cross Disaster Management Program and how it responds to community needs during times of crisis through direct services such as providing support, hygiene kits and blankets; family reunification service; critical information dissemination to the public through the TELUS Red Cross Call Centre; and coordination with all levels of government, local authorities, communities and other relief organizations to address outstanding client needs.
The Red Carpet Soiree is a festive evening of great food (prepared by Executive Chef Frank Pabst and Raw Bar Chef Yoshihiro Tabo), wine , silent auction prizes, and special exhibits in the wine room. Keira and I attended last year and had a ball.
Tickets for the event are available online for $100 and usually sell out each year. It just so happens that I have a pair to give away so if you would like to attend the Red Cross Red Carpet Soiree, please leave a comment on this post or publish the following on Twitter:
