Red and ready

. September 27, 2012.

The American Red Cross is always ready to support our armed forces and their families, and you can help them do it with an evening at the Red Cross’ annual B+A+S+H, a full-on fundraising party with a theme that nods back to a certain beloved military sitcom. It’s the last big party of the season, with a “mess hall” featuring hearty all-American food courtesy of Texas Roadhouse. Spend some time in “the Swamp,” featuring games of chance and family-friendly entertainment (along with some drinks for the grown-ups). Plenty of 50/50 drawings and prizes give you a chance to get lucky, and live music from local bands will keep things rocking. Proceeds benefit the Red Cross’ Hancock County chapter, and help to fund its work in disaster preparedness and relief, as well as its service to the armed forces and families.

$5 adults, $3 children. Saturday, September 15. Hancock County Fairgrounds, 1017 E. Sandusky St. 419-422-9322.
