Hotel furnishings bring $8,000 to pantry

A better than expected turnout for sales of the Karsten Hotel's furnishings brought about $8,000 to the Kewaunee County Food Pantry.  The new owners of the hotel property donated all the buildings contents to the pantry and the public had a chance to purchase the items on Sunday.  Pantry President Ken Marquardt says the contents of guest's rooms were the biggest sellers.



Some items are still available and will be offered at another sale at the Karsten property on Ellis Street in Kewaunee on December 30th.  Bigger ticket items like a grand piano and a masonic hutch are being offered to the highest bidders.
