Thanks To Our 2018 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 was a major success, and we had another record-setting year, raising $274,500.
2018 Shiloh Mennonite Community Benefit Auction
Many thanks to our friends who raised $38,713 for our clinic at the Shiloh Mennonite Community Benefit Auction held on July 14. 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, larger food service menu and extended hours for the second outdoor auction ring. Next year's auction will be held on July 13.
2018 Spartansburg Auction
Thank you to our friends in Crawford County, Pennsylvania for raising $65,670 for DDC Clinic at the 6th annual Spartansburg Benefit Auction on August 10. 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. Proceeds from the 2018 auction were nearly double those of last year. Next year's auction will be held on August 9.
2018 Geauga Benefit Auction
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, the 18th Annual Geauga Benefit Auction raised $170,117 for our clinic. In addition to live and silent auctions, this year's event included a basket raffle, full breakfast and lunch menu, and train rides for children. Popular auction items included a 24 x 32-foot garage, 16 x 20-foot timber frame pavilion, quilts, horses and one day's labor from an Amish work crew. Next year's auction is scheduled for October 12.
