Auction Invitation 2017.jpg

20th annual konosioni charity auction

We invite you to join us, in whatever way that is possible for you, as we support local not-for-profits in Madison County, the place that we all call home for four years. Please stay tuned on this page for more information on how to support our cause if you cannot make it to the event! 

In 2016, with your help, we were able to support the following organizations:

Community Bikes: collects and refurbishes donated bicycles and places them with families in Madison County who can’t afford one

Community Action Partnership: mentors Madison County youth through one-on-one interaction and group activity with an adult role model

Fiver Children’s Foundation: makes a ten-year commitment to underprivileged students from Central New York and New York City to help them find success in college, career, and beyond

Food Bank of Central New York: supports emergency food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters throughout Madison County, and works to meet the changing face of hunger in our community

Friends of Rogers: provides outstanding educational opportunities that excite, inspire and motivate people of all ages to enjoy, understand, appreciate and protect our natural environment

Hamilton Food Cupboard: provides a five-day supply of food to families in need in the Hamilton and Madison school districts

Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees: addresses the most immediate needs of newly resettled families in the Utica area

Utica Children’s Museum: fosters an environment that supports and encourages children of all ability to explore their natural curiosity to learn through hands-on play-based discovery


The website for Madison County Gives shows all of the organizations that we are supporting this year with information on each:
