ALTON – Madison County Catholic Charities is hosting a virtual auction during the month of September to make up for revenue lost from the cancelation of their annual fundraiser this year.

“We received many items that would have been auctioned off at our event from generous businesses and individuals in the community,” said Denise Brown, area director for Madison County Catholic Charities. “Even though we had to cancel the fundraiser due to the coronavirus, we wanted to give people the opportunity to bid on the items, while raising money for our programs,” she added.
