Jackson House to fundraise at Mellow Mushroom in Decatur


The Jackson House Foundation is hosting its Pizza, Picking and Preserving event at the Mellow Mushroom in Decatur on Thursday, July 18, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

During the fundraiser, a portion of all food sales and gift card purchases will be donated to the JHF, which will also be used for restoration, JHF Director Tammy Roberts said.

"Glen Copeland will be pickin' a few tunes on his guitar and singing from 5:30-8:30 p.m.," Roberts said. "We will also be drawing the winning ticket in a raffle and giving away a few door prices. Please plan to join us!"

The Foundation has been selling raffle tickets for a wood carving by Philip Terry since the beginning of June.

Terry's wood carving entitled "Cottonwood Bark Mining Town" will remain on display at Shrewsberry Donuts in Moulton until the date of the drawing, Roberts added.

"We'll continue selling (raffle tickets) from now until July 18—up until the minute we do the drawing," she said.

Raffle tickets are $1 each or seven for $5. Proceeds from the raffle will also go towards restoration efforts at the historic home. 

Raffle participants do not have to be present to win.

The Jackson House is located at 119 College Street in Moulton.
