Hutson Auction a fun event for a good cause

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

This Saturday marks the 31st annual Charles L. Hutson Auction, the sole Old Town Cape fundraiser each year.

Coordinator Emily Vines said the event drew 320 attendees last year, and is aiming to draw a younger crowd this year.

According to a story by Joshua Hartwig, Vines said donations for bid include items from businesses inside and outside of Cape Girardeau, and also include “experiences” such as date nights at restaurants and tours, rather than gift cards.

“For us, it helps us raise the funds for the rest of the year,” Vines said. “Since we are kind of volunteer-based and we rely on people from the outside doing stuff for free for us a lot, it just helps fund our staff and helps us to continue to be able to do things.”

More details as they become available can be found online at the Old Town Cape Facebook page.

This is a good event for a good cause. We hope to see you at the auction. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. at Isle Casino Cape Girardeau.
