Great support for Clay Habitat
Habitat for Humanity of Clay County is very grateful to everyone who blessed us with their support for our fish fry and silent auction April 13. Together we reached our goal of raising $2,500 to be matched by the Wabash Valley Community Foundation Grant. You made it possible for us to turn $2,500 into $5,000.
We received excellent publicity from the Brazil Times, Clay City News and Tribune-Star. Terre Haute First and Riddell Bank put the event on their kiosks. Churches and businesses kindly shared the information. The result was wonderful attendance from our community. We also appreciate Terre Haute Savings Bank and Seasoned Wick for selling advance tickets.
Habitat sends a special thank-you to Peniel Church for sharing their tables and chairs and all the churches and individuals who donated delicious desserts. Bowling Green United Methodist Church loaned their trays and had workers for the dessert tables which we appreciated. The Brazil National Guard Armory was great to work with for our event.
We appreciate donations from Jack's Fine Foods, Pepsi, Pilot McDonalds, First Financial Bank, and Riddell Bank. Long John Silvers also helped us.
We thank everyone who attended or worked to make the event a success. It was a team effort.
Our silent auction had many wonderful items and services from area businesses and individuals that were sincerely appreciated. Two talented individuals gave us items they made for the auction. An anonymous donor gave two beautiful quilts and a lovely afghan. Clifford Robertson made two creative squirrel feeders for us to auction.
