Alabama Catholic School Embraces Bitcoin for Upcoming Fundraiser

(AL.com) Holy Spirit Regional Catholic School in Huntsville, Ala., is offering supporters a high-tech way to buy tickets to its biggest fundraiser.

The private school on Airport Road says reservations and donations to the Jan. 25 BASH (Building an Academic and Spiritual Heritage) event at the Von Braun Center can be made using Bitcoin, an increasingly popular digital currency.

“In a technologically savvy city, it only makes sense that the BASH embrace this new payment system and educate our parents and students through real-life experience,” BASH chair Carlen Williams said in a news release.
