Big Shots Rhythm & Booze, Monkey Island’s hottest dance club, has partnered with the local Red Cross to present “M*A*S*H” BASH to support the local Heroes for the American Red Cross disaster relief campaign.
The event will be held at 7:00 p.m. March 28th at Big Shots Rhythm & Booze on Monkey Island. The community is encouraged to show up dressed as their favorite M*A*S*H character. There will be games, prizes, dancing and a free “shot” for everyone!
Cover charge at the door will be a $10 donation to the American Red Cross. All cover charge proceeds will benefit the local Red Cross, which last year helped 30 families after house fires in Delaware County and spent $29,349.49 for assistance to disaster victims. Typically, a family of four receives about $1,000 in Red Cross financial assistance.
“The M*A*S*H BASH party will be a way for people to have fun and support the Red Cross at the same time,” said Tammie Lewis, director of the Craig, Delaware and Ottawa Counties Service Center.
The Red Cross is best known for helping large numbers of people after widespread disasters.
However, the majority of the help provided by the Red Cross is after house fires. After a fire, Red Cross volunteers meet with the family, assess the damage to the home, and provide a debit card based on the number of people in the family so that they can purchase new clothing, coats, shoes, food and other necessities.
The M*A*S*H BASH party is just one part of a month-long Heroes for the American Red Cross campaign. Already, over fourteen Heroes throughout Delaware County have signed up. Heroes from the community each will raise $1,000 to support the local work of the Red Cross. Heroes can raise the money any way they choose — company donation, through a bake sale, car wash or simply by asking friends to make a donation.
Chairing the Heroes Campaign for the Grove area is Jaime Dobbins with All American Outdoors and from the Jay area is Ashley Kosier with Arvest. The goal for the Delaware County campaign is $10,000.
