North Webster Community Center’s major fundraiser will be highlighted on public television. South Bend’s PBS station WNIT was in North Webster to interview Jon Sroufe, representing the community center. His comments will be aired 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 29.
PBS host Gordy Young and producer-director Kelsy Zumbrun learned all about the upcoming Heart of the Community Charity Auction and Raffle, 5 p.m.-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4 at the center.
A ticket for the event entitles the holder to admission, dinner, cash bar and chances to bid on a wide variety of silent and live auction items.
Ticket holders are entered in a raffle for the chance to pick their choice of the grand prize of a car, pontoon, motorcycle, UTV or $10,000. The other two raffle prizes are $200 in groceries a month for a year and $100 in gas a month for a year. Winners need not be present to win.
Tickets are on sale at various businesses and at the North Webster Community Center office, 301 N. Main St. (SR 13).
Last year almost 2,500 tickets were sold with about 1,000 attending the event. Funds raised are used for the operation and maintenance of the center.
