Scioto County Habitat For Humanity has scheduled a Spring Fling Fundraiser for Saturday, March 23. The event will feature an evening of dining, dancing and a silent auction with music of Doc Roc and the Remedies.
The event will be held at the Sodexo Ballroom in the University Center on the campus of Shawnee State University from 6 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.
“This is the second year for the event and it helps us in a number of ways. Through this event we are able to spread the word about the mission of habitat. Also, this event serves as one of our biggest fundraisers for the year and without the necessary funds we are not able to fulfil our mission,” said Judy Meeker, Co-President of Scioto County Habitat For Humanity.
Tickets for the event are $35 each, $20 of which is tax deductible. A limit of 200 tickets are to be sold. Tickets can be purchased at the Portsmouth Area Chamber of Commerce located inside the Scioto County Welcome Center at 342 Second Street in Portsmouth.
Habitat for Humanity International is located in more than 100 countries and has completed more than 500,000 homes. According to www.sciotohabitat.org, “Habitat is committed to ending poverty housing, one home at a time, by building a decent home for a family in need. Scioto County Habitat for Humanity has found its message of offering a ‘hand up’ not a ‘handout’ has been well received in our community. Partnerships have been formed and continue to be formed, which enable successful completion of this project, and another family in need helped.”
Scioto County Habitat has seven homes in Portsmouth, three in New Boston, one in West Portsmouth and one in South Webster.
