Sumner County 4-H will be having a Quartermania fundraiser on Saturday, October 20th at the Raymond Frye Complex, Wellington. At 5:00 p.m., the doors will open, with the concession stand opening at 5:30 p.m. At 6:00 p.m., the auction will begin.  The money raised will stay in Sumner County and be split between 4-H Council and 4-H Development Fund. Vendors will be needed.
According to Sharon Taton, the Fundraising Committee Chairwoman for Sumner County, “4‐H offers a wide variety of projects that you can be involved in that provide many opportunities for learning about leadership and citizenship. We have approximately 140 kids involved in 4‐H in the Sumner County area.
As a part of our fundraising efforts, we are planning a Quarter Mania Fundraiser Saturday, October 20, at the Raymond Frye Complex in Wellington. Vendor space and table will be available for a $20.00 donation. Vendors will have the opportunity to auction two items and are welcome to donate an auction item to support 4‐H. All proceeds will be used to support the 4‐H Development Fund and the 4‐H Council.
The Development Fund is used to help send kids to county camps and/or leadership events
such as discovery days or leadership forums. Our goal is to raise enough that camp fees can be paid in full. Currently a small portion of the fees is funded.
The 4‐H Council is the governing body of the 4‐H Program. Members are representatives from each club within the county. This council raises funds for program promotion and local event planning.
The event is a lot of fun and will be a pretty easy fundraiser.  There are still vendor spots open.  This is an opportunity that helps them get out, and it also helps us.”
