The American Red Cross of Rhode Island is setting sail for new waters
and we want you to get on board!
For the past five years, the American Red Cross Evening at the Dunes event has
grown in popularity, and this year's event was so successful that we maxed out capacity! With a retired Navy Admiral at the helm, we have pulled the anchor and are charting new waters.
On Friday, June 13, 2003, we are launching the first ever Red Cross Gala at the breathtaking OceanCliff in Newport. This intimate
hotel, with a fabulous view of the Newport Bridge, promises to be full of fun and excitement!
In 2002, Red Cross volunteers have responded to 189 fires, providing emergency food, clothing and shelter to over 1,100 Rhode Islanders who had no where else to
go. We are the only agency in Rhode Island providing this critical service to our neighbors in need --- free of charge. However, we typically spend $1,000
per family we assist and with a cold winter thus far, we are assisting more victims compared to past years. The Red Cross is not a government agency and depends
on special events, like the Red Cross Gala, to fund its work.
