CHAMPAIGN -- There's no place like home and one area group is setting out to prove it. Habitat for Humanity is showing The Wizard of Oz for its fundraising event. The non-profit will also show photos of what it's been doing this summer.

It will begins at the Hyatt Place Hotel for food and drinks, then moves over to the Art Theater Co-op for the movie. Development director, Kelly Hill, says they hope the event will raise awareness of its mission.

"That's what we do," said Hill. "We are building homes for folks in our community that need better shelter. We do a lot of hard work to help people."
Hill says they are encouraging people to wear costumes.
