A Celebration of 25 Years of the Black & Red 

On February 14, 1992, Hartford Hospital hosted its first Black & Red Ball. Benefiting babies with heart problems, the first Black & Red event more than doubled the organizing committee’s goal of $50,000, raising $110,000 through the sale of 400 tickets and outright donations of $40,000.

Today, the hospital’s signature fundraiser is simply the Black & Red. The ball has become a gala, bringing nearly 1,200 guests to The Bushnell for a dynamic night of entertainment, dining, dancing, and honors. Since 2013 the event has raised $1 million each year for its chosen beneficiary . Over the past 25 years, $10 million has been raised. The growth of the gala is a direct reflection of the generosity of Hartford Hospital’s community and its dedication to the well-being of those we serve.

Bone & Joint 9.12.2014

Funds raised through the 2016 Black & Red will benefit the Bone & Joint Institute at Hartford Hospital.  Under construction at Retreat Avenue and Seymour Street in Hartford, the Bone & Joint Institute will bring innovative, coordinated orthopaedic and musculoskeletal care into one facility, integrating all elements of treatment, including primary and specialty care, diagnostics, rehabilitation, rheumatology, neurology, and pain management.

For information on how you may sponsor the event, please review our Sponsorship Opportunities Guide, or please contact Carla Burgess at 860.972.1932 or carla.burgess@hhchealth.org

This new “recording rig” travels with the band.
