One of the blessings of living in Lancaster County is the sense of community. This Saturday will mark a special auction held every year to benefit the work of The Clinic for Special Children. According to their website: “The Clinic for Special Children was established in 1989 as a non-profit medical service for Amish and Mennonite
children. The clinic’s mission is to provide comprehensive medical care, integrate science and clinical medicine, and share knowledge to improve the health of
children suffering from genetic disorders. Today, CSC cares for over 2,500 patients and treats over 170 unique disorders”.
This important fundraiser for this organization is held every third Saturday in September at the Leola Produce Auction located at 135 Brethren Church Rd, Leola, PA. Breakfast begins at 7 AM with the auction starting at 8:30 AM. Several auction blocks will run throughout the day including farm supplies, furniture, shrubbery and flowers, collectibles, etc. Quilts will be sold at 11:30 AM. This stunning Nautical Star Quilt by Magdalena Stoltzfus will be one that is up for auction.
Food will be available to purchase including chicken BBQ, pulled pork, fresh baked pies, doughnuts, whoopie pies, ice cream and so much more.
With the organization benefiting many of the Amish and Mennonite community in the area, this event will be attended by many in the area. Last year there were over 8,000 attendees and the auction raised $350,000 for the medical clinic.
Plan to attend this community event – a great way to spend a day in Lancaster County!
