Intro

If you missed one of the last Swiss Red Cross Ball edition, have a look at the different amazing evenings. Thanks to our generous sponsors, partners, donors and guests,  we were able to raise funds to support numerous Red Cross projects around the world and in Geneva.

On September 29th, the Swiss Red Cross – in collaboration with the Geneva Red Cross – held the 16th edition of the Swiss Red Cross Ball. The event raised the record sum of CHF 795,000. Part of the funds raised was dedicated to run an ophthalmic clinic created by the Swiss Red Cross as well as projects in Ghana, Kirghizistan, Togo and Mali. Another part of the funds was dedicated to local projects in Geneva focusing on underprivileged families and dyslexic or hospitalized children.
