BUCKHANNON — Create Buckhannon hosted its annual elimination dinner Friday night at the Event Center at Brushy Fork.
Each year, the fundraiser supports Festival Fridays and a variety of other community improvement projects. This year’s dinner — themed the “Roaring Twenties” — featured a costume contest.
Karen Leigh, who collected $1,000, was the evening’s big winner. Although the amount raised is still yet to be determined, Create member Melodie Stemple said the dinner usually grosses about $5,800.
