The fundraiser for a Monticello man who recently underwent major surgery and faces a lengthy healing  process shows that it doesn’t take a lot of time to plan a successful fundraiser for a special person living in a compassionate community. In just over one week, a couple of Monticello women who asked that I identify them only as “a couple of Heath’s fans” put together a hot dog cookout and auction that raised $5,000 for Heath Loveless.

While the event organizers do not want to be identified, they do, however, want to thank every person who attended the fundraiser and the following individuals and businesses who contributed to the Hot Dogs for Heath fundraiser:
