Fund-raiser to help give family a home



The Cincinnati Enquirer

HAMILTON - Supporters of Michelle Wallace's family are sponsoring "There's No Place Like Home," a fund-raiser that will pay to rehabilitate the house donated to them.

Wallace, 30, and her eight children lost everything - twice in the past two years - when fires struck the public housing where they were staying in Hamilton County.

With the help of several Butler County groups, the family hopes to move from Northside to Hamilton in late June.

To raise money to fix up the home, paintings of Cincinnati Reds players - some autographed - and other celebrities will be auctioned June 8 at Miami University-Hamilton.

Information: 737-9301.
