Posted at: 03/23/2013 8:26 PM

In a time of emergency we can count on Mercy Flight to be there, and on Saturday night you have an opportunity to support their efforts.

Mercy Flight Central is holding a sock hop fundraiser at the Holiday Inn Airport from 8 p.m. until midnight. Tickets are $12 at the door.

There will be live music from the band "The Generations". There will also be a raffle and silent auction.

News10NBC talked to the CEO of Mercy Flight  on Saturday about where the money from the event will go.

“It is imperative for us to be able to have that philanthropy to be able to cover our costs to be able to continue to fly and help people out every day,” said Neil Snedeker, President and CEO of Mercy Flight Central.

If you can't make it to Saturday night's event but would still like to donate to Mercy Flight Central you can always do that online.
