February 26, 2014 - More than 120 family, friends, and neighbors gathered at the home of John & Shaine Schindler in Independence Township, Feb. 7, for Open Your Heart fund raiser for Lighthouse.

"It was a great time," said Priscilla Perkins, chief development officer for Lighthouse of Oakland County.

They donated more than $25,000 with more donations coming in, Perkins added.

"They do a great deal of good," she said. "The past two months we've had 100 new families sign up at the Clarkston office."

Lighthouse provides food, help with utlities and prescription medicine, and other emergency assistance.

"This winter has been brutal on utility bills," Perkins said.
