WEDI preparing for February fundraiser

Volunteers Heidi Moreau, left,  and Marisela Lugo prepare invitations for the Westminster Economic Development Initiative’s seventh annual Winterfest fundraiser. This year is the first time volunteers were invited to participate in promoting the event. Winterfest is a one-night celebration with a buffet, silent and live auctions, interactive displays and music. According to WEDI officials, it is WEDI’s only fundraiser, and, along with grants and community donations, is one of the major sources of funding for the nonprofit. Winterfest 2015 will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., Feb. 6, at Foundry Hotel and Banquet, 1738 Elmwood Ave. By Autumn Evans and Melissa Zimmermann
