Red Cross Dance Is Huge Success

Posted by wlpo on March 28, 2011

A fundraiser the Illinois Valley chapter of the American Red Cross brought in more money than last year’s event.

Illinois Valley Chapter Executive Director Sarah Stasik says in its fifth year, the Have a Heart Dance and Auction netted nearly 10 thousand dollars more than last year’s dance. Stasik says after the bills are paid, they will have raised over 45 thousand dollars.  The dance was Saturday night at Senica’s Oak Ridge.  300 tickets were sold.

She attributes the increase to a larger donation from presenting sponsor, Miller Group Charitable Trust, and strong auction bids. Miller Group Media includes AM 1220 WLPO, 99-3 WAJK, 96-5 the Wolf, The Newstribune and AgriNews.
