My name is Krysta Theobald, I am a Sergeant in the 733rd Maintenance Company out of Canton, I also work for the Department of the Army as a civilian in Bartonville. My friends and I are hosting a benefit for the tornado victims on Saturday, November 30th from 4-10pm at VFW Post #3883 in Bartonville. The VFW has donated the hall for us to use, and 9 local musicians/bands have donated their time to play throughout the day. We are also planning to hold a bake sale and a silent auction. We are currently looking for donations for the silent auction and donated baked goods (individual servings to be sold ready-to-eat at the benefit and whole items to put in with the auction). We already have a few things lined up, but we are really trying to get some local businesses involved. I realize this is very rushed, but we all figured the sooner the better. 100% of the proceeds from the benefit will be donated to the local Red Cross chapter to ensure that the funds stay in our community. Any help spreading the word or with soliciting donations would be appreciated.
