The Swiss Red Cross Ball was first held in Geneva in 2002. It has since become an important source of funding for for national and international programmes of the Swiss and Geneva Red Cross societies supporting people in need.
A joint event organized by the Swiss Red Cross and the Geneva Red Cross, the Red Cross Ball is held each year in Henry Dunant’s home town. It is attended by around 500 Swiss and international celebrities each committed to raising funds to help the most disadvantaged sectors of the world’s population. It is a unique opportunity for all those attending the gala to actively support the Red Cross Movement’s missions and campaigns.
The context and the measures to protect the population have led us to postpone the 18th edition of the Red Cross Ball due to be held on 10.10.2020 to October 2021.
In order not to penalize the beneficiaries of this beautiful charity event, we would like to give you the opportunity to support our 2020 projects against COVID-19. If you feel inclined to do so, please select your favourite option below.
