The American Red Cross of Ottawa County announces tickets are now on sale for Club Red's, A Bavarian Summer Fest - Willkommen! This seventh annual gala will take place on Friday, July 18, at 6 p.m. at the Catawba Island Club pavilion situated along the beautiful Lake Erie shore.
Guests are encouraged to dress in their most creative Alpine attire for this historically sold-out affair. The evening's festivities will feature German fare and décor to compliment this year's theme. The Bavarian Garden will host music and entertainment from the Edelweiss Combo along with libations provided by The Great Lakes Brewing Company and German vintner, Max Ferd Richter. Live and silent auctions will be available for attendees to bid on throughout the evening.
"The success of the event is due to the dedication and stewardship of the generous members of our community," states Carol Schemmer, this year's gala chair. "It's a reflection of their eagerness to provide not only hope, but actual help to our friends, families, and neighbors in their darkest hours when they need it the most."
Tickets are $110 and can be purchased by calling 419-734-1100. Proceeds from the event will provide critical services and lifesaving training for families and individuals in our community including disaster preparedness, disaster relief and recovery assistance, support for military members and their families and much more.
Club Red, a ladies' auxiliary, provides educational opportunities to further the services and programs of the Red Cross. The volunteer-led group is devoted to humanitarian services and compassion.
