Local Organization Hosts Festive Charity Event
12/1/2013 (Updated 11:02:08 PM)A local organization held a festive fundraiser today with some friendly competition to benefit three local charities.
The Sons of Italy hosted its 4th Annual Door Decor Wreath Festival today from 1 to 4.
Local patrons donated decorated wreaths to the event and people came to bid on their favorites. The money from the auctions goes to benefit the Daughter of Columbus Scholarship, Mom's House, and CHOW.
"We really encourage everybody to support those three organizations because they really do some great work and it's a great way to help," said organizer Rick Sands.
There were nearly 100 wreaths up for bid but this is the first year the event also had a wreath competition. Over the past three years Door Decor has raised 9000 dollars for the charities.
