Crowds Dress Up For Sherman Red Cross Gala

SHERMAN, TX -- A benefit dinner had people putting on something red, as a local charity held one of its two major annual fundraisers.

The Texoma Area chapter of the American Red Cross held its sixth annual Red Tie Affair at the Municipal Ballroom. The event included dinner, music, and a live auction of several items  including a fishing trip and a vacation to New Mexico.

Last year's event raised $47,000 and organizers hope to top that this year, board chair Sara Jerome said. Red Cross volunteers respond to major natural disasters, fires, and accidents, along with providing aid to house fire victims and firefighters.
