May 5 fundraiser will help build Habitat house

Tolt Congregational United Church of Christ invites the community to the "Raise the Roof Dinner and Auction" to raise money for a Habitat for Humanity house they will help build this summer. The dinner and auction will be on Saturday, May 5, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Carnation Elementary School.
   Please pre-purchase dinner tickets so the church can make sure there is enough food for everyone while none goes to waste. Adults are $7; children under 12 are $3.50. Call the church office for tickets and more information at (425) 333-4254.
   Since the event is on Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican theme will be in evidence. As in years past, the event will include a dinner, games for children, live music, and both a silent and a live auction.
   "This is a community party," explained Jeff Spencer, pastor at Tolt Church. "All sorts of merchants and families donate items and services to auction, then we all get together for food and fun."
