November 13 All day

The 2021 Red & White Ball will be on Saturday, Nov. 13 at The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.

The gala’s co-chairs are Jeanne Bennett, Morgan Bertram and Lilly and Alan Gretzinger.

Proceeds from this year’s event will support the buildout of a new donor room and equipment to improve the donor experience and expand blood collection opportunities in the high-growth area on San Antonio’s far north side.

This will be the first donor room expansion in 10 years by the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center, necessary to meet the needs of a growing population, especially as hospital demand continues to rise for blood and other therapeutic products provided by the community blood center. 

The Foundation, chaired by Claire and Patrick Rouse, will present its annual Chairman’s Award to the Homer Olsen family. The award recognizes those who have made a significant impact on the organization’s success.

Frost will receive the Patron Award for outstanding commitment to and significant philanthropic support for the lifesaving mission of BioBridge Global through the Foundation.

Details are coming soon on seats, tables and sponsorships for the ball. For more information, contact Foundation Manager Mary Dial at 210-249-4498 or mary.dial@bloodntissue.org or visit RedAndWhiteBallSA.org.

For more than 45 years, the nonprofit South Texas Blood & Tissue Center has focused on a critical purpose: to save and improve lives.

Inspired by a group of physicians, our organization was formed to provide blood to the South Texas region – ensuring a safe and adequate blood supply through proper testing, storage and distribution to hospitals. This essential service allows front-line workers to focus on the direct care of patients, with confidence that this lifesaving resource will be there when it’s needed most.

But we didn’t stop there. Over the years, we’ve evolved as the needs of our patients and hospitals have changed, driven to save lives in as many ways as possible.

We couldn’t do this without donors like you. We understand that the gift of donation is a personal, powerful choice that has the potential to touch a life. Today, we offer many ways to make a difference that include:

Our team has also expanded its programs, partnering with leaders within the healthcare industry to develop a wide range of therapies. We’ve recently developed programs to collect and distribute COVID-19 convalescent plasma, as well as improve trauma care.
