Habitat to hold fundraiser

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Habitat For Humanity of South Barry County will hold a fundraiser at the Crowder College Cassville Campus auditorium on Friday, April 29. The Texans, Curtis Ray's country and gospel group, will perform at 6 p.m.

"If you do not come, you will miss the best gospel and comedy show you will ever see," said Nora Young, Habitat For Humanity of South Barry County president. "The Texans perform at the Passion Play restaurant all summer, and the tickets to see them there are a lot more than to see them here.

"Along with being extremely talented, The Texans have large hearts and are donating their time to help others," said Young.

Concessions will be available during the event. Attendees can purchase a meal that includes a hamburger or a hotdog, chips and a drink for $5.

"This is to help God's people in need," said Young. "Our Habitat affiliate does not do a lot of fundraisers. We depend mostly on local donations and the Restore to fund our builds.

"Habitat has started the Cassville build and is looking for volunteers," said Young. "We are applying for a building permit for the Emerald Beach build and will be looking for volunteers there as well."

Individuals interested in helping with either build can call the Restore in Cassville at 846-0110. The Restore is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Proceeds from the April 29 fundraiser will be used to help fund current and upcoming building projects.

Both open seating and table seating will be available during the fundraiser. General admission is $5 per person. Tables, which including seating and meals for eight individuals, cost $100.

For more information, to purchase tickets or to reserve a table, call Young at 847-0360. Tickets can also be purchased from Habitat For Humanity of South Barry County Board members Louis Metz, Judy Hayes, Robin Cooper, Leesa Tate, Gail Reed, Justin Gates and Lindsay Reed.
