A fundraiser at the Urban Country furniture store at Bethesda Row raised more than $10,000 for a local wounded veterans charity last week.

Urban Country hosted its annual Home for the Holidays silent auction last Wednesday for the Combat Soldiers Recovery Fund. The nonprofit, founded by Chevy Chase resident Garland Miller, gives 100 percent of its donations to recovering soldiers at D.C. area military hospitals.

The event featured auction items from a number of Bethesda Row retailers and Urban Country’s new C.R. Laine home furniture line.

Two wounded veterans, Hugh Fisher and Will Fisher, spoke during the event along with Urban COuntry co-owners Jillian and Sascha Roth and Miller.
