Carthage Y prepares for Saturday fundraiser

Updated:

The Carthage Fair Acres Family YMCA is hosting auctions to raise money for charity scholarships.

Organizers set up today for the YMCA's silent and live auction tomorrow.

They have a whole list of activities planned for the fundraiser including a children's party, food, and music from the MSSU jazz ensemble.

The funds will help with after school care and will help residents get involved with the Y.

"A lot of people can't afford a Y membership and we still want people in the community to be able to come to the Y and workout and have a sense of community here," says volunteer Amanda Stone.

The event starts at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Carthage YMCA.

Their fundraising goal is $10,000.
