A&B Kia’s fundraiser raised thousands of dollars for the city of McMechen’s continuous flood relief on Sunday afternoon.
Main Street Bank, WesBanco, and the Wheeling Nailers each donated $5,000, and more than $2500 was collected at the door, bring the grand total to about $17,500 raised for the city.
All of the proceeds from each ticket sold was donated to victims of the recent flooding in the city.
More than 500 homes were affected by flooding, and this money will be distributed to help those residents with additional utility bills and other supplies needed to aid in the clean up.
A&B Kia hosted a fundraiser for the city of McMechen’s flood relief on Sunday afternoon from 2 to 5 p.m.
Tickets were $50, and one hundred percent of each ticket sold was donated to victims of the recent flooding in the city.
Guests were able to enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment.
McMechen Mayor Gregg Wolfe said it was a great event, and that he is grateful to A&B Kia and attendees for supporting the community.
“You know, it’s a community effort to get back together and it has really come together, and it has been really nice. If we could sustain it, that would be a really good thing. To keep it as tight knit as it is right now, that would be the goal into the future,” Wolfe said.
Wolfe urges any McMechen residents affected by the flooding who haven’t yet registered with FEMA to do so.
Main Street Bank, WesBanco, and the Wheeling Nailers each donated $5,000 to the city, and A&B Kia donated $100,000 dollars a few weeks ago.
