Habitat for Humanity of Merrill, Inc. will hold its silent auction and raffle starting at noon on Labor Day, Monday, in the Stock Building at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds. The silent auction and raffle will follow the holiday parade.

There will not be a household auction as in the past.

The silent auction will begin at noon and conclude at 4 p.m. The board has been canvassing the city of Merrill this summer, asking businesses to donate gift certificates or prizes for the silent auction. In spite of a struggling economy, businesses have been more than gracious, donating more this year than ever before, and auction attendees will have a wide range of items to bid on. More donations still would be welcomed.

Raffle prizes include a queen-size quilt made and donated by Habitat Quilters (on display at River Valley Bank in Merrill), $500 gift certificate donated by Miller Home Furnishings, $500 gift certificate donated by Courtside Furniture and 32-inch LED HDTV donated by Wal-Mart.

Anyone interested in donating to the auction, volunteering or receiving information about a home, should contact Habitat President Dennis Grefe at 715-539-3337, or write PO Box 141, Merrill.

Raffle tickets are available, for $4 each or three for $10, at River Valley Bank, Aunt Lu's Antiques, Ye Olde Sweet Shoppe, Chamber of Commerce and at the Stock Building during the festivities Sept. 2.

Winning tickets will be drawn at 4 p.m.; the winner need not be present to win.

Habitat is grateful for the many donors that make this event possible and to the many community members who attend to support its mission. The organization will use the money raised to build the next home this fall.
