Marion Advancement Campaign holds annual fundraising dinner

Gene Winkler, MAC board member, and Chuck Maggard, of Griffith Real Estate and Auction Services, ran a live auction at the annual fundraising dinner for the Marion Advancement Campaign.
HiFi Productions provided live entertainment of dueling pianos at the Marion Advancement Campaign’s annual fundraising dinner.

The Marion Advancement Campaign held its annual dinner on Saturday, March 5. The Campaign has accomplished many improvements throughout Marion such as providing funds to help equip Marion PD patrol cars with video recorders and providing funds to purchase audio equipment for the MHS football stadium. They are currently working on the conversion of the ballroom balcony from seating only to a functional dining area. This will greatly expand the functionality of the facility for weddings and formal dining events.

They are also working on improvements to the park.

“We sold out our event at 205 tickets. We raised over $16,000 for the Marion Advancement Campaign. Our current project is a complete restoration of the west fountain with the colorful lights in the Marion park,” said planning committee member Emily Kannady.

The dinner was prepared by Josh & Alison Tajchman, of Marion’s That One Place. HiFi Productions provided entertainment with dueling pianos. We auctioned off ten items in our live auction, with auctioneer services donated by Chuck Maggard of Griffin Real Estate and Auction. As part of the event, donated items were auctioned off live before the entertainment. This year the auction brought in $6,500 which was about $2,500 more than last year.
