The Force will be strong Feb. 27 at the State Bank Oscar Night gala to benefit the American Red Cross, featuring upscale dining and desserts, dancing and even a Lightsaber Ice Luge bar. “You don’t have to travel to a galaxy far, far away for an evening of black tie glamour and fun,” said Todd James, executive director of the Hancock County Chapter of the American Red Cross. “Like a ride aboard the Millennium Falcon, we’ll give our guests a night of thrills and excitement.”

The theme of the night will be, “May the Force Be With You,” with the gala being held from 7-11pm at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1050 Interstate Drive West in Findlay. Guests will enjoy upscale cuisine offerings from local chefs, including Host Chef Casey Johnson of the Hilton Garden Inn. Time Warp DJ Service will provide entertainment.
