On October 1, 2016, the Sons of the American Legion (SAL) Post 239 in Cascade held their fall Gun and Cash Bash on the old parade grounds at Fort Ritchie.
Of the 2,000 tickets sold, there were more than 750 people in attendance. Considering the gloomy weather, it was quite a crowd!
Attendees enjoyed visiting with friends, playing the games, and winning the raffles. “Fisher House,” “SAL Person(s) in Need Fund,” and the community will be recipients of the proceeds of the event.
There was plenty of pulled pork and beef, along with other picnic items, including Jen’s ice cream, to satisfy the hungry and the thirsty.
A heartfelt thanks to those who attended, especially the devoted volunteers who made this benefit a winning success.
The fortunate winners of the event were: J. Waggoner, F. Sheibs, A. Bare, D. Pryor, P. Fleagle, C. Cartee, G. Reese, L. Bell, B. Culison, S. Mummert, B. Gladhill, E. Kleen, S. King, C. Knott, J. Schnars, H. Portner, W. Haden, and K. Coyle.
The next Gun and Cash Bash will be held in the spring. Watch for upcoming information about the date and where to get your tickets.
