The Salvation Army says a fundraiser involving 'The Castle' in Woodford County has been a success.

For three days people have toured the Castle and its Christmas decorations.

The money raised goes to the Salvation Army's homeless shelter.

Salvation Army Major Debra Ashcraft says, "We hope that we're able to raise at least $30,000 for the shelter. We're going to be grateful for whatever we raise. So the Castle looks beautiful. The response has been great. People love seeing Castlepoint. They're very excited that Mr. Post is here, and they've been able to greet him and view all the Christmas decorations. So all the feedback has been positive and it makes us feel really good that people are enjoying themselves."

It was an extensive tour which included the grand ballroom, grand foyer, music room, library, dining room, billiard room and a couple of guest suites.
