Win Tickets to Just Red: The After Party

Posted by Holly Whitfield | November 12th 2013 5360 0

The Mid-South chapter of the Red Cross is hosting an after party following their annual Red Boa Ball fundraiser this Saturday. DJs from Paula and Raiford's Disco, food from Local Gastropub, and an extreme amount of dancing are on the agenda for Just Red: The After Party. I have two tickets to give away.

I didn't know until recently that the American Red Cross collects around 40 percent of all blood used in our country's hospitals. Wow. The mostly volunteer-run organization does a ton of other stuff for disaster relief, helping military families, and more.

If you want to win tickets, just comment on this post and tell me why you want to support the Red Cross by attending. (Hint: there are tons of reasons that you can steal, er, learn about, here.) I'll pick a winner at random later this afternoon.

Just Red: The After Party is this Saturday November 16 at Memphis Botanic Garden's Goldsmith Room from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. Tickets are $50 per person ($75 on Saturday). Grab a date and you can get a couples ticket for $85 ($125 on Saturday). Buy tickets here.

    I want to attend because I support the admirable work that Red Cross does, especially their work with blood drives and donations. 

  2. Katie says:

    I would love to attend to support the Red Cross' mission to help those in need, especailly in light of the recent typhoon in the Phillipines. Also, working in healthcare, I know the need for their tremendous blood drives!

  3. Nathan Tipton says:

    I have been a longtime supporter of the Red Cross and *really* appreciated the herculean work they did in response to Hurricane Katrina back in 2005. Incredibly worthwhile organization that I’d love to support by attending the Red Boa Ball.

  4. Brittany Brown says:

    I remeber when I was little my dad would take me with him when he went to donate blood every 3 months. He has a very rare blood type and was always ready to donate as much as possible to help other people. He taught me to make donating blood a habit as soon as i was eligible. I would love to be able to show my continued support of the Red Cross.

  5. Helen says:

    The Red Cross is vital to the work we do at the children's hospital here in Memphis. It is also vital to every medical facility in this city and so many others. If we didn't have the Red Cross so many people would suffer the consequences of not having blood readily available. I would just like to say thank you to all who work for the Red Cross Orginazation as well as to all the people who donate their time and ultimately their blood. Peace.

    I want to attend because the Red Cross helps families in times of disasters.

  8. Tamika Lo says:

    I would love to be there to support the Red Cross, I have donated blood consistently at my place of work and it is an easy way to save a life.  Also Red Cross is always there as first responders at just about every natural disaster. I would love to dance the night way with such great people. 

  9. Katie P. says:

    I'd love to support the Red Cross because it's so amazing that so much of the work they do is driven by volunteers.

  10. Andrew Baker says:

    I believe I would prove to be a fantastic guest at the Red Boa Ball After Party, because I am able to comment on all of the awesome things that the Red Cross does to help those in need, without sounding like I'm kissing ass while I do it. 🙂

  11. Christina V says:

    It would be amazing to attend because of the wonderful work the the Mid South Red Cross does across SIX counties!!

  12. Holly Whitfield says:

    Tamika Lo you're the random winner! Congrats! You've got 2 tickets to Just Red: The After Party. Please email me at with your full name, email address, and phone number and I'll tell you how to get them. 

  13. Alex Cation says:

    I’m going because the Mid-South Chapter of the American Red Cross provided emergency communications and disaster relief services to over 1,312 + local military service members and their families whenever it’s needed and I find that just awsoke.

  14. Whitney says:

    I'd like to go because I just moved to the area and want to learn what the Red Cross is doing and who they are serving in our lovely Memphis!
