The Sixth Annual Hinton Area Foundation Autumn After Five event and auction was held on September 26 in the beautifully restored McCreery Event Center in Historic Hinton. The community came out to support this fun evening in Historic Hinton and enjoyed wine, beer, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent and live auction. All funds raised during this event benefit Summers County and the Hinton Area Foundation in its mission.

During the past year, the Foundation has contributed over $60,000 to the community through grants, scholarships, medical aid and assistance, beautification projects and many other entities.
