DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Wiregrass 2-1-1 held their signature Sip, Celebrate, and Give fundraiser celebrating 11 years of service Thursday evening.

The event featured good food, a cash bar, an auction of 60 items, and an opportunity to learn about Wiregrass 2-1-1. The fundraiser generates money to sustain the program and it’s doing quite well.

“Well, we’re doing pretty good. Before we opened the doors tonight, we had already raised $9,000. We’re hoping to raise about $15,000 by the end of the night tonight. I think those odds are good that we might do that,” said David Duke, the executive director of Wiregrass 2-1-1.

Duke said the money will go a long way in helping collaborate, inform, and connect people in the Wiregrass to resources that make a difference.
