Local legend Crystal Bowersox, of American Idol fame, generously donated "Holy Toledo" as the bonus track. The CD also opens with a heartwarming rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," previously recorded by fans at a recent Toledo Mud Hens game.

"There's really something for everyone," said Amanda Aldrich, communications specialist for American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio, "It's the perfect CD to put in while cruising around town, barbecuing in the summer sun, or sitting by the pool. It's also kid-friendly too, so you don't have to worry about kids overhearing and singing along."

Proceeds from the CD benefit programs and services of American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio, including:

-Disaster preparedness and response

-Support for local military families during emergencies

-Lifesaving skills, such as first aid, CPR and AED

-Access to lifesaving blood services.

The $10 raised from the sale of one CD helps provide things like food, clothing, temporary shelter, and comfort kits for adults and children following a disaster.

"Red, White, and You" is sponsored by Toledo Free Press, Bennett Enterprises (Frisch's Big Boy's/Ralphie's), AA Boos & Sons, Toledo News Now, Hollywood Casino Toledo, 1370 WSPD, and KeyBank.
