KAUKAUNA (WLUK) — The Green Bay Aquarium Society hosted an auction of exotic aquatic animals in Kaukauna Sunday.
On Saturday, the club took in 20 exotic animals at a surrender event including a number of aquatic animals.
Those aquatic animals were available at the auction Sunday, along with others that were brought in by pet owners.
The auction helps raise money for the club which it uses for conservation, preservation and education.
All of the money raised from the event will be donated to the Coral Restoration Foundation which works to restore coral reefs in the Florida Keys.

(WJAC)JOHNSTOWN – Bishop McCort Catholic High School held its third annual Four Diamonds Mini-Thon Saturday night.
Bishop McCort modeled the event after Penn State’s 46-hour dance marathon.
The event was a 12-hour dance marathon, which ran from 7 p.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday to raise money for the Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, an organization designed to defeat childhood cancer.
They say they hope to break last year’s record of $12,000 raised.
Runners help raise money to open forensic exam site for sexual assault survivors
Sexual assault victims won’t have to go to an emergency room or police station.
“Typically when someone’s experienced sexual assault, they have to go to the emergency room to have evidence collected,” said advocate Dottie Stafford.
The proceeds benefit sexual assault survivors served by the Crisis Line and Safe House of Central Georgia.
Stafford says victims will be more comfortable with nurses and law enforcement, especially those trained to deal with sexual assault cases.
“Last we served 147 new victims of sexual assault in our service area,” said Stafford.
