The Fulton Soup Kitchen is hosting a quarter auction at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Fulton Event Center to raise money for a new cooler.
"It started out as 'keep the lights on' because we always have to pay our electric bill, but we have a cooler that went down," said Gerry Mize, Fulton Soup Kitchen director of daily operations.
The soup kitchen hopes to raise $1,000 to help cover its operational expenses.
Doors open at 2:30 p.m. Refreshments including taco salad, chili dogs and drinks available for purchase.
A quarter auction is a cross between an auction and a raffle. Attendees buy numbered paddles, which cost $5 each or $20 for five.
To bid on an item, bidders donate an additional 25 cents and raise their paddles into the air.
The auctioneer then pulls a number from a bowl until one matches one of the raised paddles.
Those who don't win during the auction will still have the chance to purchase products from more than 20 vendors.
"We're really hoping for between 50 and 100 people," Mize said, though she said the Super Bowl might cut in to their attendance numbers.
"But if any ladies or men too don't care about sports, they might want to come down and shop," Mize said.
