Story

Welcome to Red & Black Ball's Givebutter page! Red & Black Ball is Warner Hall's annual philanthropic event that features an extensive silent auction, live music, a raffle, speakers from RAIN, and a yummy dessert bar! In just the past two years, RBB has raised over $100,000 for RAIN and the Mwandi Christian Hospital.

 RBB is sponsored by Warner Hall House, a women's service and social organization at Davidson College. Our philanthropy centers around HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness. We have two beneficiaries: RAIN in Charlotte, NC and the Mwandi Christian Hospital in Zambia. Warner Hall is one of the Hospital's biggest benefactors. As such, a member of our House (currently Emma Blake '20) sits on their board of directors. The Ball is organized by a committee of 10 Warner women, led by service chairs Molly Bair and Emily Lynch.

In previous years, our funds have been used to build a new emergency room and intensive care unit at the Mwandi Christian Hospital, and have also been used to sponsor RAIN's support services to people living with HIV/AIDS in the Greater Charlotte Area. Further, this past summer, Warner was able to send three of our members and our faculty advisor, professor of biology Dr. David Wessner, to the 2018 World AIDS Conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Read about their experiences here! https://warnerhallservice.org/..

Warner Hall has partnered with RAIN and the Mwandi Hospital because we recognize the importance of fighting HIV/AIDS both locally and globally. Worldwide, more than 36.9 million individuals are living with HIV/AIDS. Over one million of these individuals reside in the United States, and about 15% are unaware of their infection. Mecklenburg County, the home of Davidson College, has one of the highest infection rates in the country; it doubles the North Carolina state average.
