There's still time to be a part of this weekend's annual fundraiser for the Clinton Athletic Booster Club.
Maroon Madness is an annual event that brings Clinton Maroons sports fans together for the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Clinton Athletic Booster Club. Booster Club President, Brian Ennis, indicates Maroon Madness is it's the eighth year.
Ennis explains the event is basically a reverse raffle with dinner and an auction along with a cash bar.
Ennis says they've been fortunate to have a number of local businesses step up to provide auction items along with their usual tickets to several sporting events in the area.
The junior high wrestling program will be the beneficiary of this year's Maroon Madness as they will be purchasing new wrestling mats for that program. Ennis says money raised goes back into high school and junior high school athletics programs.
There are still tickets to be purchased for Maroon Madness this year. To get ticket information, contact Ennis at 217-433-8769. Doors open at 5:30 pm at the Abigail in Clinton.
