With over 50 donated live and silent auction items to choose from at MEHOP's Fiesta fundraiser, event attendees took their time browsing each and every item Saturday, May 4. See more MEHOP Fiesta coverage, Page 2.

   About $35,000 was generated during MEHOP’s Fiesta fundraiser event with over 250 people in attendance Saturday, May 4. 
   “We’re still finalizing the total count,” said Donna Huitt, MEHOP marketing director.
   “But, we raised $700 alone from the 50/50 raffle. This year’s turnout was a bit smaller than last year. It was Election Day and there was another large fundraising event on Saturday as well as youth sports. 
   “Matagorda County is blessed to have such an active community. However the downside is it is difficult to find a weekend when there isn’t anything scheduled or falling on back to back weekends with other events,” she added.
