Habitat for Humanity holds annual fund-raiser
By SCOTT BUTKI
About 330 people attended the annual fund-raiser for Habitat for Humanity of Washington County that raised at least $19,000 Saturday night.
Tickets for the eighth annual event at the Ramada Inn were $35 per person.
The theme was "Planting Hope with Humanity."
The goal was to raise $20,000, which would pay for half the cost of a home. That would also mark the most money raised at the annual event, said Sherry Brown, executive director of the county chapter.
The total raised was at $19,000 by 9:30 p.m. Saturday, and the event was not yet over.
The event invitation states that every 10 seats sold would pay for a window and 10 tables sold would purchase a heating system.
