A Red Tie Affair
ABOUT THE EVENT:
The highly anticipated 2014 Red Tie Affair is thrilled to honor BNY Mellon, Mr. Patrick Durkin, Managing Director of Barclays and Greater New York Red Cross board member, and Candice Bergen for their tireless commitment to help those in need. BNY Mellon will be receiving the Corporate Leadership Award, Mr. Durkin will be presented with the Humanitarian Award, and Candice Bergen will receive the Vanguard Award.”
The 2014 American Red Cross Gala will also honor heroic individuals that have served the mission of our organization over the past year. These heroes gave of themselves to support people whose lives were turned upside down by tragic incidents over the past year. We will also recognize our volunteers who provide hope, help and healing for fellow New Yorkers affected by "everyday disaster" 6 to 10 times a day, 365 days a year.
The highly anticipated 2014 Gala will feature cocktails, dinner, and awards. This annual fundraiser makes it possible for the Greater New York Red Cross Region to help our neighbors when they need it most. Please join us for this gala to support the lifesaving mission of the Red Cross.
