MCHFH Celebrates 25th Anniversary with Dinner & Silent Auction

On Tuesday, October 15th, Marion County Habitat for Humanity celebrated our 25th Anniversary with a Dinner & Silent Auction at Woodhaven in Marion, SC. The fundraising event was a vital campaign used to generate capital funds to improve housing conditions for families in Marion County residing in poverty housing. Funding was generated from table sponsorhsips, ticket sales, silent auction and also a live auction. After expenses, MCHFH was able to secure over $18,000 that will be applied to the home of Marcia Ellerbe (House #37) located at 165 W. Laurel Street, Mullins. Marion County Habitat would like to thank those that sponsored tables for the event:
