Holy Family Parrish’s charity auction had netted almost $20,000 as of Monday, according to committee member Sam Oborny. She said more might be coming in.
“It was a record-breaker,” Oborny said. “The online auction grew a different crowd.”
The drive-through meals handed out March 21 served at least 200 people, and many gave more than the $10 requested.
“One man gave $300 for four meals,” Oborny said. “We had such good support.”
Some items like beans and potato casserole ran low early and had to be replenished or substituted. The pulled pork ran out by 4:30 p.m.
Oborny said the proceeds would go to Marion County Food Bank, Community Christmas, and families with special financial needs.
