Thanks To Our 2019 Community Benefit Auctions Supporters
Each year, our friends in several Amish and Mennonite communities hold benefit auctions in support of our work with special children. This year's auction season exceeded all of our expectations, raising a record-setting total of $367,000 for our clinic.
2019 Shiloh Mennonite Community Benefit Auction
Many thanks to our friends who raised $37,000 for our clinic at the Shiloh Mennonite Community Benefit Auction held on July 13. This auction benefits both DDC Clinic and the Clinic for Special Children in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This year's highlights included an expanded silent auction area, all-day food service menu and extended hours for the second outdoor auction ring.
2019 Spartansburg Auction
Thank you to our friends in Crawford County, Pennsylvania for raising $70,000 for DDC Clinic at the 7th annual Spartansburg Benefit Auction on August 9. The auction is held every year to help support our mission as a number of families from the Spartansburg area travel to DDC Clinic for their children's care. Among the many items donated to the auction were handmade quilts, furnishings and local produce. Support for this community auction continues to grow every year.

Popular auction items included a 24 x 32-foot garage, 16 x 20-foot timber frame pavilion, quilts, horses and a pig pen complete with two pigs and 100 pounds of feed.
