RUSSIA — On Au. 23, Cruizer’s Bar and Grill in Russia hosted its fourth annual car show to benefit Hospice of Miami County.
Susan Hemm , marketing and development coordinator for Hospice, was the recipient of a $3,900 donation. Hospice, being volunteer driven, uses benefits such as this to help maintain the structure that it takes to keep the quality of assistance for those who require it, according to Hemm.
Music was provided by Jimmy Weaver, who also announced the raffle/silent auction winners and the car show trophy recipients.
Southwest Airlines provided two roundtrip airline tickets for a raffle, which raised $620. Mark Brandt was the recipient of the airline tickets.
