“Buffalo’s Best Annual Fundraiser” Is Friday Night!

If you've passed by 786 Delaware Avenue today, you may think that the army is setting up camp at the Red Cross Headquarters! But in reality, it just means that the party of the summer is almost here!! Preparations are now underway for the BASH*2011 this Friday, June 3rd, starting at 8pm. 
This is the 13th year for the one-of-a-kind military themed event, which was recently named “Buffalo’s Best Annual Fundraiser” by Artvoice for the fifth time.  Over 4,000 BASH attendees get dressed up in their best military gear to sample food and drink from some of Buffalo’s best restaurants, and enjoy the music of Signature Entertainment’s DJ Mike Setlock, as well as a live performance by the one and only Lance Diamond.  Guests also get the the opportunity to bid on dozens of exciting auction items donated by members of the Western New York community, including original works of art, jewelry, gift certificates, and even vacations.  All proceeds from BASH*2011 will stay right here to help the American Red Cross provide vital disaster response and preparedness education in Western New York.

The only way to get into BASH*2011 is through the purchase of a $100 BASH Raffle ticket, which comes with:
  • Two tickets to the General Admission tent
  • Two drinks per person
  • All the food you can eat
  • PLUS the chance to win $10,000, $5,000, or $2,500 in the BASH Raffle

There is also still a chance to start the party at 6pm by becoming a VIP through the group sales option, with the purchase of 15 BASH Raffle tickets earning 10 tickets to the VIP tent.
Only 1,000 total BASH Raffle tickets are being sold, and they’re going fast.  Tickets will be available each day this week at the American Red Cross Headquarters, 786 Delaware Avenue, between 9am-5pm.
