The Guam Chapter of the American Red Cross has announced the kick-off of this year’s 19th Annual Red Ball sponsorship and fundraising efforts.

The American Red Cross is a non-profit organization that runs on volunteer services to aid victims of disasters. As a way to recognize its many volunteers and donors within the community, the Guam chapter of the American Red Cross will host its annual Red Ball fundraising event on Sept. 21 at the Dusit Thani Resort Guam.

This year’s Red Ball Chairman, David John, president of ASC Trust, announced that the theme of this year’s event is “Color Me Red,” which will recognize the many efforts and contributions that the Red Cross has made in the past year.

In addition, Atkins Kroll officially announced its sponsorship of this year’s Red Ball event. Atkins Kroll president Alex Hammett said AK will be contributing the 2019 BMW 7series 740i as the grand prize for the Color Me Red sweepstakes. Hammett is confident that the prestigious BMW automobile will boost ticket sales for the event. The lucky winner will be able to take home this new luxury sedan.

Ed Ilao, president for JMI-Edison and Andrea R. Ilao Foundation, said he will be administering the raffle ticket sales for the event. The tickets are being sold at $100 each with a limit of 1,500 tickets.

According to Chita Blaise CEO of the American Red Cross Guam Chapter, raffle tickets for the BMW 740i can be purchased at Atkins Kroll, the Red Cross, JMI-Edison and Meskla Chamorro Fusion Bistro. Ticket holders do not need to be present to win.

Ernie A. Galito, AK Marketing and Communication Director said that tickets can also be used as a voucher, good for $1,000, toward any 2019 BMW vehicle.

For those interested in attending this event, call the Red Cross at 472-6217.
