Join the American Red Cross of the Southern Tier tonight for an evening of music and comedy starting at 5:30pm at Remliks to support the “Heroes for the American Red Cross” campaign. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Red Cross or Remliks.

“Heroes” is a grassroots campaign where businesses, school clubs, church groups, civic organizations and individuals pledge to raise at least $1,000 for the American Red Cross Southern Tier Chapter, which includes Broome, Chenango, Delaware, and Tioga counties.

The the money raised will support Red Cross services, including disaster relief, assistance for fire victims, emergency military communications, and first aid, CPR and other lifesaving classes.

During last year’s “Heroes” campaign, a 12-year-old girl recruited an online team that raised $1,000; a plant in Tioga sold hero squares for $1 apiece and raised $1,100; and a Broome County bank raised $1,600 during “Jeans Week,” when they paid to wear jeans for a day or the week.
