Letter: Habitat for Humanity’s first pie auction a success

To the editor:

Habitat for Humanity’s very first pie auction on May 28 was a huge success! A big thank-you to the Crafters of Crust! Ten pies, created by 10 amazing Brown County residents, were auctioned off and garnered nearly $1,200.

Bragging rights go to Cathy Martin with her very special rhubarb pie bringing in the highest bid. Other pies fetching big bids included the 4-H award-winning apple crumb pie and a chicken pot pie in a skillet.

Lastly, thanks to the event volunteers, our fun auctioneer Tom Floyd and all the bidders who made this event fun and exciting.

The money raised will be used to provide affordable housing to Brown County residents and for Brush with Kindness projects in our community.

Don’t forget, there are three more pie auctions coming up this summer/fall. You still have a chance to help out Habitat and enjoy a delicious pie.

Look for us on Saturday, June 18 at 3:30 p.m. at the Village Green. Some of the mouth-watering pie creations include date night nut pie with Bourbon, Hoosier sugar cream pie and an interesting shoofly pie.

Please join us on June 18 and stick around for the free Arts Village Brown County Concert featuring Silver Sparrow beginning at 4:30 p.m. at the pavilion.
