Bacot McCarty Foundation hosting virtual auction for local charities

The Bacot McCarty Foundation’s biggest fundraising event for the year, ‘The Jolly,’ was canceled due to Hurricane Zeta.

While this might be the par-tee you were expecting, the organization is still committed to raising money by having a silent auction.

Last year, The Jolly raised millions of dollars for many various causes on the Coast. To help the community again, they are bidding off items on the website and search for “The Jolly Auction 2020.” Bacot McCarty Foundation Board member Joey Conwill said, “All of these nonprofits have not been able to have their fundraisers this year due to COVID and due to hurricanes. So, it’s very important that you take a look at these items and place and bid if you can and give back to these local charities and put money back to the Gulf Coast.”

As of Tuesday morning, they’re halfway to their goal of $30,000. The Jolly Auction ends November 12th. You can find more information by visiting the Bacot McCarty Foundation Facebook page.
