One local organization is putting the fun in fundraiser this evening.

DeWitt County's Faith in Action is hosting a Thanksgiving Binga.  The event is one of several fund raisers throughout the year for Faith in Action, and Larry Buss, with the organization explains several years ago, a grant Faith in Action had ran out, and they have been trying to come up with different ways to raise funds for their programs and services.

Back by popular demand will be the vegetable soup. Buss says that has been a big hit at their previous binga events, and it returns for this special Thanksgiving event, followed by games of binga.

Like most organizations, fundraisers go to support the programs, staff and costs associate with the organization and Faith in Action is no exception. Buss says one unique thing about the organization is they do not have a lot costs to keep themselves going, so they can run on a smaller budget.
