Concerns over public health are once again moving the Muskingum County Community Foundation’s Groundhog Day Celebration and Auction to a virtual setting instead of in-person.

The auction presented by Park National Bank and the MCCF will kick-off Friday January 28 at 6pm with a special announcement video on the MCCF Facebook page.

The on-line auction will take place on the foundation’s website. The auction will end February 2 at 12pm and the great groundhog giveaway drawing will take place on Facebook Live at 5pm on that same day.

Proceeds from the auction support non-profits through the Foundation’s Spring Grant Competition in March.
