Last fiscal year, the Red Cross responded to 139 disasters in the Wabash Valley, providing more than 536 individuals with the means for temporary lodging, food, clothing, critical medications and mental health support. Most of the disasters the Red Cross responds to locally are home fires.

The goal for this year's classic is to raise at least $15,000 to help provide disaster relief and emergency services to local military families throughout Clay, Greene, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo counties in Indiana and Edgar County in Illinois.

The lead sponsors for this year's event are Riddell National Bank and York Chevrolet.
