Slideshow: Starlight Parade

As I mentioned last week, the Red Cross participated in the Rose Festival Starlight Parade this past Saturday 5/30. We weren’t just at the parade, we lit up the night! Wearing Red Cross vintage uniforms and t-shirts, Red Cross staff and volunteers waved to Portlanders from a brightly illuminated Red Cross-themed float. Not to brag or anything, but we looked really good.

One reason we love to be in the Starlight Parade is because it gives us a great opportunity to thank the community that we serve. The Red Cross is grateful for your generous donations of money, time, and blood. Thank you!

Check out a slideshow of the parade below. Notice our friend Tom (a.k.a. Blue Steel) modeling an amazing 70s Disaster Relief jumpsuit. Totally fierce.
