PLYMOUTH — The Keep the Heat On (KTHO) Committee is pleased to announce that the 9th annual KTHO fundraiser will take place at Plymouth State University's Prospect Hall on Wednesday, January 15, 2014.
This event, which includes a buffet dinner provided by over 20 local restaurants, silent and live auctions, and the always-informative Energy Room, raises money for fuel assistance to families in 15 local communities. As the need for assistance has grown over the years, the KTHO fundraising has increased to meet that need.
After last year's record-breaking auction success at the Plymouth Senior Center, the KTHO Committee determined that a larger venue was needed. Prospect Hall will fit the bill perfectly, providing the "elbow room" that guests need to comfortably browse and bid on silent auction items, and to peruse the live auction items in anticipation of bidding.
Though the autumn foliage is still in its glory, the Plymouth Area Community Closet (PACC) is already gearing up for the winter heating season. State and Federal fuel assistance remain limited, which means that the money raised at the KTHO dinner and auction will be critical to addressing the need for help in Plymouth and the surrounding 14 communities.
In addition to the proceeds from ticket sales, auctions, and contributions, the generosity of sponsors adds significantly to the amount of fuel assistance the PACC is be able to distribute. Last year, sponsors donated over $14,500 to KTHO, bringing the total to over $36,000. The Committee hopes to go over the $40,000 mark in 2014.
Despite the new, larger venue at Prospect Hall, tickets for the 9th annual KTHO Dinner Auction will be available in limited numbers again this year—with the ticket price still just $35.
Keep the Heat On is organized and sponsored by the Plymouth Area Democrats (PAD) partnered with PACC in their continued mission to provide assistance to those in need.
