Club Red’s sixth annual “Sherry & Chocolates” event was hosted recently by the club’s founder, Cindy Amerine, at “Love on the Rocks,” the lovely home of Kim and Liz Skrinak of Catawba Island. The annual membership drive featured not only a home tour, but also speakers who shared information about Club Red and its mission to educate the public of the many Red Cross programs and services offered locally and across the country.
Special guest, vocalist Carmen Miller, entertained the 75 women present with her fabulous rendition of “I Have Nothing.” Miller will be joined by local piano man Greg Fox during the cocktail hour of this year’s Club Red gala, “Black & White with a Splash of Red” to be held on Friday, July 20, in the Catawba Island Club Pavilion. Tickets are on sale now for what is sure to be another sold-out Club Red affair. Ticket requests may be made by contacting this year’s ticket chairwoman, Marian Tavtigian, at 419-797-4151or the American Red Cross, 419-734-1100.
“Get your tickets now before they’re gone. This is a fun-filled evening which supports the American Red Cross and all funds stay in Ottawa County,” said co-chairwoman Lynn Majce.
Many Club Red members have taken training to volunteer to assist the programs and services of the American Red Cross which include support for our Armed Forces personnel and their families, disaster and emergency relief, health and safety training, community blood drives, local and regional Red Cross boards.
