Wiregrass 2-1-1 turns 11

By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- When you don't know where to go for help call, Wiregrass 2-1-1. It's a local non-profit call center that directs people to more than 900 local organizations.

But to keep those services going, Wiregrass 2-1-1 is holding a fundraiser in honor of its 11th anniversary.

It's called Sip, Celebrate, and Give. 2-1-1 Executive Director David Duke says this event will generate much of the money to fund the center for the year.

"I think the community realizes this has become a valuable service for those in need, who don't know where to go or what to do, and we don't take that lightly. We are very appreciative," said Duke.

Community donations make up 98 percent of funding. Last year $15,000 was raised and this year they hope to match that or get more.

For tickets, additional information or, if you or your business would like to be a sponsor or donate door prizes or auction items, call David Duke at 334-836-1963. Tickets can also be purchased online at www.Wiregrass211.com.
