Nearly 400 people showed up at Lilly’s Oktoberfest Saturday Nov. 22 at the Washtenaw Farm Council grounds to help raise money to support the Foundation for Fighting Blindness through Lilly Diuble, a seventh-grader with a rare genetic disorder called Ushers Syndrome that could leave her deaf and blind.

A local group called Lilly's Friends has raised more than $100,000 for FFB. At least 350 people came through the lines to grab a meal.

The night featured music by the three-piece band Eclipse and attendees browsed several tables that held items for silent auction, a regular auction and a raffle.

Some of the big items up for auction included a Salmon dinner for six, a giant plaque recognizing Michigan State’s Rose Bowl win and five nights in a condo near Disney World.
