Meet Our Sponsors

Thank you so much to our new presenting Auction sponsor, Rodgers & Associates, and all the  sponsors; local businesses; hardworking volunteers; and generous auction-goers who contributed to the most successful Labor Day Auction in history! It is because of you that we raised more than $880,000, surpassing the previous record of $870,000 set in 2019. All funds raised will provide hospice and palliative care, and bereavement support to the thousands of patients and families who are served by Hospice & Community Care.

There was intense bidding for everything from a Smokey Mountain vacation to autographed baseball jerseys and diamond jewelry to weed wackers; a beautiful Amish buggy sold for $10,500; and three used cars were sold for a total of $7,200. The food, which alone raised more than $86,000, was a big attraction for many attendees, and we are thankful to our Amish friends for donating their time and talents to freshly prepare all of the food on-site.

Next year’s Labor Day Auction will be held Saturday, September 3 and Monday, September 5, 2022 at the Solanco Fairgrounds in Quarryville. We hope to see you there!

Again, thank you!
