Habitat restore holds auction event


An auction in Longview today to help an organization, who's business is to help many others.

A public auction was held today at Habitat for Humanity resale outlet in Longview. Celebrity auctioneer Walt Cade was on hand to auction off everything from flat screen t-v's to life-rings. The effort is part of a fundraiser to help Habitat buy a new truck for them transport donated items.

"More donations means all of the profits we make in our restore go toward building homes in Longview. We celebrated our 80th home this year and we want to be here for at least 80 more," says restore director Lajuan Hollis.

Habitat workers say they are hoping to raise around 16-thousand dollars in the effort.
