Dance and dinner raises money for the Red Cross

Posted by wlpo on March 26, 2011

Disaster and the Red Cross normally go hand-in-hand, one exception being Saturday night.  The fifth annual Have a Heart Dance and Auction Dinner and Auction was anything but a disaster.

Illinois Valley Chapter Executive Direct Sarah Stasik says after the sponsorships, tickets sales and live auction they had raise $55,000, a total that was expected to grow.  She expects to have a more accurate total Monday.

And even as the guest snacked on food and placed bets in the live and silent auctions, they mission wasn’t forgotten.

The dance was sponsored by the Miller Group Charitable Trust.  Miller Group Media includes AM 1220 WLPO, 99.3 WAJK, 96.5 the Wolf, The Newstribune and AgriNews.
