The American Red Cross, Hardin/LaRue Service Center, held its annual golf scramble July 31 at the Lincoln Trail Country Club in Vine Grove. More than $6,700 was raised to benefit the Red Cross Disaster Services Program. Eighty golfers played in an 18-hole team scramble, with a complimentary lunch, goody bag, door prize for each player and cash prizes. Thanks go to The Cecilian Bank for co-sponsoring and helping with the event.

The American Red Cross meets the needs of someone in our community every day. It may be through a blood transfusion, a CPR class, an emergency message to a military person in a foreign country, or emergency financial assistance to a family who lost their home to a natural disaster. Since the American Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on donations, we sincerely appreciate the support of our community for these fund-raising events.
