The Santa Monica Red Cross on May 9 is hosting the 9th Annual Red Tie Affair, one of the Los Angeles Region’s major fundraising events to support disaster relief. This year’s “Surviving in Style” theme engages guests in response efforts, while preparing them for disaster — with a playful yet respectful spin — by offering unique auction items inspired by celebrity donated surviving in style emergency kits. Proceeds will benefit Red Cross local and international disaster relief.

This year’s Surviving in Style theme takes into account that while most emergency kit items are critical to surviving a disaster, certain comfort items can help people feel like themselves, even as life is irrevocably altered.

Red Cross supporting guests will also enjoy food stations from local Santa Monica area restaurants, as well as creating survival kits at a Build-A-Kit station, and a unique & interactive Muddle-Your-Own- Mojito Bar, hosted by Patron. The event will be held at Le Meridian Delfina, 530 Pico Blvd.
