The auction is on your phone! On Friday, March 5 the 24th Butler Benefit Auction goes virtual — but still includes silent and live auctions, golden ticket drawing, a fine arts performance and the Pure Philanthropy scholarship appeal. There’s no cost to attend and bidding for both live and silent auctions will open one week early on Feb. 26. Funds raised support the Butler Community College Foundation.
