March Proclaimed as Red Cross Month

Tell Your Story and Win a Trip to See Keith Urban in Washington D.C.

To commemorate March as Red Cross Month, a Proclamation has been signed and issued by President Barack Obama, a tradition upheld by every U.S. President dating back to Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1943. Locally, many public officials will follow suit. We'll keep you posted as they do.

During the month of March, in celebration of Red Cross Month and in the spirit of volunteerism, the Red Cross is launching the first ever
Change a Life contest. Entrants are invited to tell us how a Red Cross experience changed your life or someone else’s life. The Grand Prize winner will receive two tickets to see Keith Urban in concert on his Escape Together World Tour in Washington, DC on August 20. The package includes backstage passes, hotel accommodations, and a tour of the National American Red Cross headquarters’ Disaster Operations Center. The Second Prize winner will receive a 52” Phillips HD LCD flat screen television and DVD Player!

Entries must be received by March 16, 2009. Visit to enter today!
