      Village House benefit to feature Wally and the Beavs

      Village House in Fremont is gearing up for the warmer days to come by holding a benefit fundraising event.

      The first annual Village House ??Spring Fling?? is set for Sunday, April 28th, and will feature music, auctions and raffles?|all to raise money to help cover to cost of their daily operations.

      Area band ??Wally and the Beavs???|a favorite with the fair, festival and Islands set?|will provide the musical entertainment.

      The ??Spring Fling?? will be held at the American Legion Hall in Fremont, Ohio. Doors are slated to open at 1pm, with the band starting its show at 2pm. Food will be available on-site, and a cash bar will be open to help satisfy any thirsty dancers.

      Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to get a look at the items that will be available in the event??s ??Chinese Auction???|and to purchase last minute raffle tickets for the day??s big prize which is a 50?? High Definition plasma television.

      In addition to the auction and TV raffle?|a 50/50 and several ??pull-ticket?? raffles will be held throughout the event. Organizers say that the items up for grabs will appeal to everyone who comes in the door...including four tickets and pit passes to the Quicken Loans 400 to be held in June at Michigan International Speedway.

      Village House serves the children of Sandusky County and surrounding areas by providing a safe, loving environment for child victims of abuse, neglect, divorce or separation. Visitation rights of parents and guardians accused of abuse in Ohio are maintained until a court decides otherwise.

      Village House provides a safe, monitored place for those visits to take place?|in addition to assisting in custody exchanges and providing parental counseling.

      The organization has a limited fee structure?|so nearly all of its operating budget comes from grants?|and fundraisers like the ??Spring Fling??.

      Tickets for the event are $20 each and can be purchased by contacting Village House at 419-334-4582. Additional information and updates can be found on their website at www.villagehouse.org. A link to the Village House Facebook page can also be found at the website.
