Hamburger Night, an event celebrating Independence Day in honor of local veterans, active military and their families, will take place from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on June 22 at the American Legion Hall in Bellingham, 1688 W. Bakerview Road.
The event is a joint effort between the American Legion Post 7 and Mount Baker Chapter of the American Red Cross to raise funds for new chairs for the Legion Hall.
The evening will include burgers, live music, auction items and fun for the whole family. Dinner menu items vary but the average meal will cost between $5-$8 with all proceeds supporting the Legion fundraiser.
Locally and nationwide, the American Red Cross supports military members, veterans and their families in emergency situations. The Red Cross also partners with local organizations in support of our military community.
