MORGANTOWN (AP) — A Morgantown fundraiser received some star power from Emily Maynard of ABC’s “The Bachelorette.”
Maynard attended an event Friday night at the Hotel Morgan for the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Northern West Virginia. The group serves 32 counties in the state.
Maynard was born in Morgantown and moved away in junior high school. She resides in Charlotte, N.C., with her young daughter.
Maynard told The Dominion Post that she returns to Morgantown about once a month to visit family and doesn’t get treated differently because of the show.
Last month on the show’s finale, the 26-year-old Maynard revealed she chose Jef Holm, a 27-year-old entrepreneur from Salt Lake City who then proposed to her.
