   Hotel Blessing exceeded their goal amount after their fundraiser Saturday. July 18. with an estimated 500 to 600 attending the five-hour event. 
   “A huge contributor to increase attendance is the word of mouth from past attendees about how great a time they had listening to the polka band, eating, buying auction items, sitting under the trees visiting with old friends,” said Connie Cobb. 
   Just over $15,000 was raised to help renovate the dining room floor of the hotel. 
   “We had hoped to match or exceed last year’s total, in which we successfully exceeded by $1, 000,” said Cobb. 
    “Auction was down this year but was made up by increase in raffle and food sales due to increased attendance.”
