Kirksville ladies raise 'Quarters for Quota'

Ladies in the Kirksville community had the chance to get together and bid on some great items, all for a great cause.

Quota International held a 'Quarters for Quota' auction fundraiser Friday night.

At the event, paddles were raised as bids were placed on some great items for a good price.

Items up for auction ranged from gift certificates to restaurants as well as lotions and handbags.

The bids were taken in quarter amounts. Anywhere from one to four quarters, depending on how expensive the item was.

The donations raised at Friday nightâ??s fundraiser will benefit Quota International's philanthropy which helps those who are hard of hearing or speech-impaired.
