State Rep. Grove working to make quarter auctions legal

There are 4 comments on the The York Daily Record story from Jan 9, 2011, titled State Rep. Grove working to make quarter auctions legal. In it, The York Daily Record reports that:

Winning a $40 oil change for two quarters is what hooked Shelly Keller. She'd recently moved to Etters, and a friend invited her to a nearby fire hall for a "quarter auction," a kind of raffle/auction hybrid that are increasingly popular as fundraisers.

Thank you Seth for having your priorities straight in Pennsylvania. There are no more pressing issues facing the Commonwealth than the threat to quarter auctions. This is one of the major issues facing the state - and the nation as a whole, for that matter. I will do what I can at the federal level bring this quarter auction debacle to the forefront of our country's legislators by banging my oversized gavel. Kinda makes me choke up. Waaaaahhh.

Actually that's not how they run at all. An item is displayed. They are told how many quarters are needed to bid. They bid by putting their quarters in containers on their table. The given amount times the amount of paddles they want to hold up. The MC as you refer to them then pulls numbers out and calls the numbers. If and only if the person bid and is holding up their number when it is called do they receive the item.
