Local Group Hosts New Roof Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The building of a 55-year-old non-profit organization needs a new roof, and they hope a fundraiser on Friday evening will bring in much of the needed funds.

Dozens of people in the community attended the Friendship House's Garden Fiesta. The Friendship House is a neighborhood action program designed to help kids and families to succeed, and offers mentoring and tutoring programs, as well as a place for families to go during the day, and after school.

"A lot of our families come from single parent homes. It's rewarding to see how you connect with them and you are such a positive person in their life," said Jessica Sprattler with the Friendship House.

The produce served at Friday night's Garden Fiesta came from the Kid's Garden at Friendship House. The fundraiser reportedly brought the organization 25% close to its fundraising goal.
