Red Cross Allegheny Region Hosts Entertainment Show to Benefit Disaster Relief

“Red Cross Revue” to be held Saturday, April 13 at the Barrow-Civic Theater

FRANKLIN, Pa. – The American Red Cross is committed to its lifesaving mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies. Every eight minutes, the Red Cross responds to a disaster somewhere in the United States. However, as a nonprofit organization, the Red Cross relies on the support of local communities to continue its humanitarian relief efforts.

To garner local support and raise funds for its vital mission, the Red Cross Allegheny Region Chapter will host its annual ‘Red Cross Revue’ entertainment show on Saturday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m. The show will take place at the Barrow-Civic Theater, located at 1223 Liberty St. in Franklin. Amanda Post, WICU-TV news anchor, will serve as the event’s emcee and will also perform a musical number.

“The Red Cross Revue is a great opportunity to spend an exciting evening with local residents while also supporting a worthy cause,” said Pam Masi, executive director of the local Red Cross. “Guests in attendance can enjoy local entertainment, knowing that their support will help their neighbors in times of need.”

Featured performers include Hunter Cook and Hayden Cook, Tammi Dahl and Rachael Mellor. In addition, Lynn Nicols, the Cluricaun Celtic band and musical groups from Clarion University and the Meadville Community Theater will take the stage.

Tickets to the event are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $9 for groups of ten or more. Tickets are available at the Barrow-Civic box office.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the local Red Cross serving Clarion, Crawford, Forest and Venango counties. The funds raised will support local disaster services, preparedness and response training and emergency services for local military personnel and their families.
