Vendor fair helps raise money for Eddy House

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -- Several hundred people came out to support the Eddy House February 25, 2018.

The event was organized by a local businesswoman, Rebecca McGreevy. It brought together more than 70 vendors to the Paradise Room at the Atlantis.

"They do so much work and they are so amazing. Somebody needs to step up and help them out," said Rebecca McGreevy.

This was the third event this past month to raise money for the Eddy House. The two previous events raised a total of $10,000 and this fair raised more than $1,800 in helping the Eddy House reach its goal of getting a 24-hour facility built to get homeless youth off the street.
