Community Fund Summer Fund Raiser draws a sell-out crowd

The first ever Webster County Community Fund Summer Fun Raiser was held Aug 24th at Pig Hill Farm & Vineyard in Webster Springs and drew a sell-out crowd.  The event featured a wide range of farm-to-table food selections, craft beer from Big Timber Brewing, a silent auction and an outstanding comedy performance by the Fearless Fools Improv Comedy Troupe.  The event served to promote and inform the community about the Community Fund, as well as raising several thousand dollars to support the Fund. 

So many people were responsible for helping make the event a success, it's nearly impossible to list them all... but here's an attempt to do so:
*Chris & Penny Graham and Pig Hill Farm & Vineyard for use of the facility. 
*Crystal Weir for managing the food and drink portion of the event.
*Anna Casey for overseeing the silent auction, decorating, as well as a tremendous amount of other work & support.
*Alexandra French, Leslie Markle, Amy Moll, Deb White, Allison & Jeremy Pyle and Sue Weir for support with food preparation and serving, promotions, hosting, child care and much, much more.  Brandon Moll for being master of ceremonies.  Sky Sanders for bartending.  Jamie McCourt for guitar music and Mark Barnette for DJ'ing.
*Webster County students who worked hard as servers: Isaac Pyle, Reese Williams, Ashton Moll, Brody McCourt, Bree Moll, Rosie Wright, Haley Leichliter, Hadley Butcher and Ethan McIe.

The following provided items for the silent auction: Blue Iris Inn, Minnich’s Florists, Snowshoe Mountain Resort, C J Maggie’s Restaurant, Holly River State Park, Ellie Mae’s Restaurant, Thelma Kirkpatrick, WV Mountain Rail Adventures, Studio 226 Salon, Cherry Falls Pottery, David Gillespie, Webster County Memorial Hospital, Durham Builders, Basket Elves/Amy Walker, Hilltop Diner and Casey’s Hardware

The following sponsored by purchasing tables of tickets: Casey’s Hardware, Custard Stand, Davis Health System, Gils Towing/Contracting, Leslie Equipment Company, Lovers Lane Boardwalk/David Gillespie, Pardee Resources Company, Spillman Mountain Farm Products, Webster Media, United Bank, Webster County Memorial Hospital, Glade District Improvement Council, First Community Bank, Pettry Funeral Homes LLC, Mineral Springs Motel, Town of Cowen and

Ladies Auxiliary, Martin Farm and Gary & Sue Schrader Farm.  Apologies to anyone who also helped and were left off this list.  So many in the community pitched in and helped, that it was difficult keeping a proper list.
