In honor of Red Cross Month in March, The Toughest Monster Truck Tour, Stockton Arena, The Girl Scouts of America and the American Red Cross are working together to help provide relief and comfort to the families of many in the area who have suffered from the recent fires.

Girls Scouts will earn their patches by decorating teddy bears, after which the teddy bears will be auctioned to the public. All proceeds of the silent auction will go to the American Red Cross.

A reception scheduled for Thursday, March 29 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Record Press Club at the Stockton Arena will feature the silent auction, live entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, and a chance to meet and mingle with the drivers and the trucks of the Toughest Monster Truck Tour. Patrons will be able to bring in teddy bears to donate to the Red Cross to help alleviate the pain of future disasters.

Tickets to the reception will also include entrance to the Toughest Monster Truck Tour, scheduled on Friday and Saturday, March 30 and 31 (attendance at one night only). A percentage of the ticket will also go directly to the Red Cross.

Ticket cost is $30 and they can be purchased at the Stockton Arena Box Office.
