Prizer Point hosted a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation on Saturday, one that included a two-hour cruise, a live auction and a dinner that featured a hog roast (one of two roasted pigs pictured at left).

An event at Prizer Point on Saturday raised thousands of dollars for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“It turned out well,” said Prizer Point owner Greg Batts. “We didn’t know how it would turn out, being the first time we did it. On the cruise itself, we probably ended up raising about $2,000.”

Kristina Rhodes of the Make-A-Wish Foundation said the inaugural Land and Sea Aloha Affair was successful. While she was disappointed about the rain, which took place during the hog roast, the weather was perfect for the cruise, which she said was a lot of fun. She estimated that as many as 75 people attended the cruise part of the event.

All of the funds raised at this event will stay in this area, and there are 25 kids in the area, which includes western Kentucky and the bottom corner of Indiana.

“It’s something we talked about for a couple of years,” said Rhodes. “But really, at the first of the year, we started hitting it hard and planning.”
