Are you wondering what a Quarter Auction is? Quarter Auctions are fundraisers at the core, but they are also social events designed to entertain attendees who have chances to win auction items at incredibly low bids such as a quarter or two. A group of friends will enjoy time browsing the wide variety of items and the excitement of evening. The timing of this event is ideal for someone who likes to find specialty gifts for friends on their Christmas lists.
The Alton United girls soccer teams are raising funds to help pay for tournaments and equipment for game play. The team prides itself on its sportsmanship and strives to develop young athletes into skilled, competitive and confident young ladies.
