Butler Community College raises an accident-free $140,000

Butler Community College raised a record $140,000 at its annual foundation auction Friday.

Almost as importantly, there were no scooter accidents.

Butler president Jackie Vietti rode a Piaggio scooter onto the stage before it went up for bid.

It had foundation executive director Keri Myers a little concerned.

"We were intensely hoping that she wouldn't get the throttle and brakes interchanged and crash through the head table."
