Hundreds showed up tonight for the 18th Annual Picnic On The River at Schwiebert Park in Rock Island. 

From live jazz music to a handful of local chefs and restaurants. Everyone came out to not only enjoy the nice summer weather but also to support a good cause.
     
All proceeds from the event, including the silent auction, go to the Quad Cities chapter of the Red Cross.

"It raises those essential funds," Red Cross' Betsy Pratt said. "We couldn't do it without the community's support. On average, it costs $1,100 to help a family of four that's been affected by a fire."

A "fund a cause" auction was also held at the event which will help support Red Cross services to the armed forces.
