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.

"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."


Golfers support local American Red Cross

The 28th Annual American Red Cross–Materion Golf Scramble was recently enjoyed by 144 golfers at the Oak Harbor Golf Club. Funds raised help support disaster preparedness, relief and recovery, and services to military personnel and their families. 

The day’s top team prize went to Larry St. Clair, Doug St. Clair, Bob Paulson and Craig Jess. Port Clinton Ford underwrote the Super Ticket portion of the day including two 3-day 2-night vacations awarded to Rich Hillman and Tony Wilson. Photos captured each participating team at the skirt hole and can be viewed on the American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio Facebook page. 

In addition to a variety of raffle and door prizes supplied by local merchants, golfers bid in a live auction for golf and lunch for four at the Catawba Island Club, and golf for four at Plumbrook Country Club.
