The Frankford Rural Fire Department will be hosting its fifth annual Quarter Madness fund raiser on April 5th. This event promises to follow previous quarter madness events that have been held in the surrounding areas.
Quarter Madness is a fun, fast paced evening of bidding on items that have been donated by local vendors and/or merchants. These include tupperware, gift cards, cash and many item to numerous to mention
Paddles are purchased at the door for $1 each. You may purchase as many paddles as you would like for bidding with that evening.
Items are bid on with quarters according to their value. You may bring your own quarters for bidding or they will be available for purchase at the door.
No item requires more than four quarters for bidding. While this may sound complicated — it’s actually a lot of fun!!!
