Proceeds benefit programs to raise awareness about importance of cord blood donations
The Blood & Tissue Center Foundation, a subsidiary of the nonprofit biomedical company BioBridge Global, is thrilled to announce the details of its annual marquee fundraising event, the Red and White Ball. The black-tie gala will be Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Marriott Rivercenter, 101 Bowie St. A cocktail reception begins at 6:30 p.m., and dinner and dancing begin at 7:30 p.m.
Ginny and Art Bennert are the co-chairs of the 2017 ball.
The event, which began in 2004, helps increase awareness in the community and raise money for the patient services, research and therapy programs of BioBridge Global. Proceeds from this year’s Red and White Ball will be directed to GenCure programs supporting the collection of lifesaving umbilical cord blood donations.
