Attention Philly Foodies - The Red Ball

If you hadn't figured this out already, I really...really love to attend food events, and food events for a good cause are even better.

You can read about my past food events under my March Of Dimes tab or Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation, Las Vegas.

And then there's The 2009 Epicurean Affair...

I'm honored and thrilled to announce that I've been invited to another amazing foodie event called The Red Ball produced by The Philadelphia Red Cross. As we all know, The Red Cross has been very busy in the Haiti relief efforts, so this event comes at a very appropriate time.

The Red Ball is a “red-tie” gala event featuring food tasting from 40 of Philadelphia’s premiere restaurants as well as dancing and luxury auction items. The event raises money for Red Cross House, a one-of-a-kind short-term housing facility in West Philadelphia where hundreds of local families every year begin their recovery from fires, floods, and other disasters. Each year, Red Ball attracts more than 1,000 guests from the Greater Philadelphia area’s business and social communities.

All proceeds from the Red Ball will benefit the Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the Red Cross and the operations of their one-of-a-kind Red Cross House recovery facility located in West Philadelphia. Red Cross House is a stable environment designed to help families find shelter and recover from a disaster by supporting their emotional, spiritual and physical needs.

Sounds totally fabulous, doesn't it?! Stay Tuned to The Housewife Diaries for a full report on the evening, the food, the guests, the gossip and everything in between! (Word is that Adam Crossley is going to be performing. Squeeeeeal!)
Here's a few pictures of the preview press party to hold you over:

I never get invited to cool stuff like that since I relocated. You've lived in Philly for like 2 minutes...WTF?

Nice! That looks like fun and yummy I'm sure. I took your advice and started doing some of the same research. Didnt come up with much, but I'll keep looking.
