Habitat for Humanity of Marion County raised around $5500 through their dessert concert and silent auction earlier this month. Community Outreach Director Alyssa Vande Voort says they had around 200 people in attendance at the Pella Opera House that bid on 60 silent auction items. This year’s event tripled the proceeds of the 2012 event. Vande Voort and Executive Director Lisa Houser thank the event’s main sponsor, Kevin Van Wyk, Sydney Lett and the Charlie Koopman Band, and all of those who attended the event for their generosity and support.
