Funds raised from Saturday nights Cook Islands Red Cross Society “Red by Night” charity ball will go towards the Society’s mission to build a resilient Cook Islands through the power of humanity.

Guests turned out in their finest to enjoy the glitzy evening with guest speaker Doctor Lance O’Sullivan, who shared a touching story of his early childhood struggles which ultimately led him to his current career path.
