A Bavarian Summer Fest- Willkommen!

The American Red Cross of Ottawa County hosted “A Bavarian Summer Fest – Willkommen!” Friday, July 18 at the Catawba Island Club. The 7th annual Club Red fundraising gala was a benefit for local Red Cross disaster relief and recovery.

“What a wonderful night!  The ladies of Club Red created a Bavarian festival filled with color, music, food and an auction that exceeded our goals.  The stars of the night were the always-generous guests who come every year and support the Red Cross by bidding with abandon,” said event chair Carol Schemmer.
