We have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s BASH for Mercy Flight scheduled for August 15, 2020.

For the health and safety of our community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s BASH for Mercy Flight. However, it will be back better than ever in 2021! The event will be held in conjunction with Mercy Flight’s 40th Anniversary on Friday, June 4th, 2021, at Buffalo RiverWorks.

Although we will not be gathering in person this year, it is our sincere hope that you will still consider supporting our fundraising efforts and support Mercy Flight’s mission of providing rapid and compassionate emergency medical care WHEN MINUTES MATTER.

Please consider making a donation today
Thank You.
