BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- It was a night of live music, food, and military attire at this year's BASH at the Buffalo Chapter of the American Red Cross on Delaware Avenue Friday night.

More than 4,000 people attended the event Friday evening, making this fundraiser a huge success once again.

The crowd enjoyed amazing foods from some of the area's top restaurants, the music of Lance Diamond, Signature Entertainment's DJ Mike Setlock, and our one-of-a-kind military-themed event.

Even better, all proceeds of The BASH stay right here to provide vital disaster preparedness education and response to Western New York communities.

The BASH was named Buffalo's Best Annual Fundraiser in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011 by ArtVoice AND also was the recipient of the 2007 Outstanding Event Award by Buffalo Niagara Event Professionals!
