Just over $8-thousand is the final tally from a fundraiser last weekend in DeWitt County for a group aimed at providing a safe haven for seniors.
The DeWitt County Friendship Center's Ham and Bean Supper raised just over $8-thousand last weekend and Executive Director Sissy Leggett says it was a packed house Saturday night at their facility on Main Street.
Because the fundraiser was so succesful this year, Leggett indicates they will likely target some projects within the center that need to be addressed.
Leggett thanks Lance Schmid of Schmid Auctions for donating his time and services. She also appreciates those that donated baked goods for their auction and those that came out last Saturday to support their efforts in the community.
