Because of the cancellation of its annual fundraiser dinner due to the coronavirus pandemic, Catholic Radio Indy 89.1/90.9 FM is offering two online and on-air events in its place.

An online auction will be available on Sept. 1-9 at Starting on Sept. 1, participants can register and bid on more than 100 items, including jewelry, art, wall hangings, food at Indianapolis-area restaurants, wine, fun family adventures, a houseboat rental, off-road vehicle rental and even two laps around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway 500 track at up to 180 mph.

Also, those who donate $65, what would have been the cost of one seat at the fundraiser dinner, will receive an oil change card worth approximately $100. Those who donate $130 will receive two oil change cards worth approximately $200. Those who donate $450, the cost of a table for eight, will receive up to eight oil change cards worth approximately $800.

The highlight of the auction will be a special on-air show from 5-6 p.m. on Sept. 9. During the show, Archbishop Charles C. Thompson will announce the winner of Catholic Radio’s inaugural Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s “Evangelist of the Year” award and present the winner with the award.
