Paint the Town Red in 2009

The Honourable Julian Evans, Consul General of the United Kingdom, and Mrs. Gayle Evans, recently opened their home in San Francisco to honor the Red Cross, in anticipation of the 2009 Paint the Town Red gala.

We love that Co-Chairs Kelly Murphy and Roberta Economidis, with gala committee member Kelly Grimes, got into the spirit of the event by dressing in red. It’s just a preview of the February evening party, which will be a sea of red. What fun!

The Paint the Town Red Gala is an annual benefit, to be held on Saturday, February 28, 2009. As the headlining fundraising event for the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter, the goal is to raise $500,000 for local disaster readiness and relief.

We hope that you join these folks in their support of this vital organization in February. You can purchase tickets or get more information at www.redcrossbayarea.org/Gala2009
