The Hannibal Nutrition Center again has the potential for a big payday when its annual auction comes around in February.

Nutrition Center Director Debbie Catlett has announced that, for the second consecutive year, the Riedel Foundation will award a $25,000 matching grant to the center in conjunction with its annual dinner-auction February 11th.

Last year, the center raised nearly $27,000 at the dinner, so the matching grant raised the total near the $52,000 mark.

The money taken in during the annual fundraiser goes to support the center’s home delivered meals program.
