Auction Fest 2021 was an online event for the second year, due to the COVID 19 pandemic. The public responded and the Auction Fest committee presented a check to Emmetsburg Catholic School for $100,000 this week. Students were part of the Auction Fest experience, first by donating items for the auction and this week by helping to present the check to benefit their school.
