28th Annual Benefit Auction & BBQ
Thanks to the wonderful support of the local community, Fairmount Homes once again realized a record-breaking Benefit Auction on Saturday, September 9. Thousands of people gathered on Fairmount’s scenic hilltop where thousands of items, including beautiful handmade quilts, creative theme baskets, a vintage Allis Chalmers tractor, a Burkholder trailer, and Dining for Dollars events were up for bid. The weather was beautiful, the food was delicious and plentiful, and there was something for people of all ages to enjoy. For the children an ultra-light candy drop was the highlight of the day.
Thanks to everyone who attended and participated in any way. And special thanks go to the many volunteers, from the people who quilted or made items to donate throughout the year, to the Ephrata High School students who helped set up tables and chairs and bring flea market items out from their storage area, to the committee who planned and executed the event, to everyone who auctioned, manned stands, parked cars, drove a shuttle, cooked and served food, or cleaned up afterward. Without your help, this event could not have been possible.
Not only did Fairmount’s 28th Annual Benefit Auction and Barbecue provide an enjoyable experience for all who attended, but it presented an opportunity to support a worthy cause. Proceeds from the 2017 auction will go to the Sharing Fund, which helps to cover the cost of care for residents who have exhausted their financial resources
