The Red Ball 2013
I'm excited to announce that the Red Ball, produced by Red Cross of Southeastern PA, is only three days away; so stay tuned to The Housewife Diaries for a complete update next week! I cannot wait to get my fingers on all that glorious food. Plus, there are a few new surprises at this year's party, the most exciting being the VIP lounge -- which will be expanding by 40,000 square feet. For the first time ever, this year’s VIP guests will occupy the lower level of the Please Touch Museum where they will be entertained by local jazz artist Gerald Veasley. In addition to exclusive access to the VIP Lounge, VIP ticket holders will enjoy express entry, private topshelf open bar, cigar bar, separate coat check and a special VIP gift bag. (Ummm, yes please!) Also for the first time at the Red Ball, Main Event ticket holders will have access to the Please Touch Museum’s beautiful carousel.
A little more about the event...
The black-tie event features food and drinks from many of Philadelphia’s finest restaurants. The 2013 Red Ball will once again include the annual Red Ball Restaurant Competition, allowing guests to select their favorite food for an award at the end of the night. CTO Productions will provide live music in the Main Event area and guests will have an opportunity to bid on fantastic auction items.
There is still time to get your tickets, but they're going fast! This will be my fourth year attending the Red Ball and, with the new VIP additions, I can bet this will be the best party yet. Bring on the food, the fabulous, and the fun! Celebrities are also promised to attend, although they're not telling whom this year (sneaky devils) -- I can't wait to find out.
