A local entity is celebrating another successful fundraising event from last month.
The DeWitt County Friendship Center's annual ham and bean supper and cake auction was coming off a record year and administrators say their 2017 fundraiser was another success. Executive Director Sissy Leggett says it was a great event this year even though they did not quite match last year's levels raised.
Leggett continues to push the message the Friendship Center does not receive any state or federal dollars in the continued mission of being a resource for the County's seniors. She explains they rely on fundraisers and grants and local tax levies to help keep them afloat.
Leggett feels as though the fundraiser continues to grown and get better every year.
She thanks everyone that came out and thanks Lance Schmid for donating his auction services during their cake auctions and for making it an enjoyable evening.
