On Thursday (March 22), the Greater Miami & The Keys Chapter of the American Red Cross announced that Puerto Rican superstar Chayanne will receive the Crystal Cross award at the 36th Annual Red Cross Ball titled "A Masquerade in Red," Billboard has learned.

"We are honored to present the Crystal Cross Award to Chayanne, who rolled up his sleeves with the Red Cross and helped with a huge humanitarian effort in Puerto Rico,” said ball chair Ana Veiga Milton. The annual event will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Ritz-Carlton in Key Biscayne, Florida, on April 7.

Chayanne has been a volunteer and member of the Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet, and the award will honor his support of and service to the lifesaving mission of the Red Cross, especially following the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria in his native Puerto Rico.

The annual ball raises funds for Red Cross disaster preparedness, response and recovery programs, and services, continuing its tradition and commitment to the Greater Miami & The Keys Chapter.
