As recommended by the CDC and Governor Pritzker, the Moline Public Schools foundation was obligated to cancel their 2020 “The Get Down” Fundraising Concert, which was originally scheduled to take place on Saturday Apr 18 at The Rust Belt.

Moline Public Schools Foundation strives to augment limited resources to allow the District’s students to achieve full potential. By engaging the community, the Foundation works to provide funding to teachers and students in the Moline-Coal Valley School District.

Instead, the foundation has decided to host an online fundraising initiative to directly support the Moline-Coal Valley School District this granting season. The E-Auction features items such as a One-Year Supply of Whitey’s Ice Cream, an American Girl Doll, a Wisconsin Weekend Getaway and so much more! More items are being added regularly and are posted on their Facebook Page.

The funds raised through this charity auction will directly contribute to the dollars they are able to grant to the Moline-Coal Valley School District this spring.

Bid, donate and share this platform with family and friends!
