A fun event is coming to Quincy in which you can support your community and raise funds for those who have served (or are serving) our country! Here's everything you need to know:

The event is called "Quarter Madness" and if you don't know what that is, it's basically an auction where each item is up for bid for one to four quarters depending on the retail value of the item. Once all bids have been made, paddle numbers will be drawn, and if you bid and your paddle number is drawn you win! Paddle numbers are drawn until there is a winner for each item and you can win multiple times (if you bring enough quarters, that is).

This event benefits the Mid-America Military Salute. There will be food, a raffle, vendor booths and so much more. The event takes place at the Quincy Senior and Family Resource Center on Thursday May 3. Doors open at 5:30 for dinner with the auction beginning at 6:30 pm.

If you would like to donate an item to next month's Quarter Madness, contact Gerilynn Morrison at 217-223-4827 or drop off your donated item at Premier Diva (located at 115 N. 4th St. in Quincy).
