The American Red Cross' Bash Touches Down in Monroe

American Red Cross
The annual MASH Bash is an evening full of music, food, and events to raise money for the American Red Cross.

After the recent flooding disaster devastated the area, many found help from the American Red Cross, as countless others have done before. The Red Cross hosts it's annual BASH on Saturday, April 30 at JPS Aviation Hanger 9 near the Monroe Regional Airport. The Bash is a fundraiser to help pay for services the organization provides. This year all of the money raised at the Monroe BASH will remain in the community to help residents clean up the aftermath of the floods. 

"We have deployed people and volunteers all over -- whether it's locally or across the United States, and we set up shop in any area that there has been a disaster to make sure we are there for those families, So any money that is donated, that is what it is paying for -- helping people get back on their feet," says Bash Chairperson Amanda Wimberly.

The event features live music, dancing, and food as well as live and silent auctions. Participants are invited to wear their best camo outfits, or dress as their favorite character from the classic MASH television series. A costume contest and photo booth helps to commemorate the evening.
