Thank you to everyone who attended and gave towards our Benefit Auction this past Saturday. We are so grateful for your support and are excited to announce that we maxed out our donation match by raising over $10,000 at our Auction. Thank you for praying and giving generously. Praise God.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our auction will look a little different this year than in years past. We will have a much shorter auction than usual and will attempt to hold it outside, weather permitting. If the weather is very bad, we may need to cancel. Moving indoors due to the weather is not feasible because the indoor limit is 25 currently in PA.
We ask that attendees respect social distancing and mask guidelines. Indoors masks must be worn. Outdoors a mask must be worn if social distancing of 6 feet cannot be consistently maintained.
If you do not feel comfortable attending due to the virus situation, or are in a high risk group, we ask that you stay home. If you still want to donate, you are welcome to send checks to the camp office.
Come to the auction early for an exciting Treasure Hunt that will span the whole camp! This is a great activity that will get you walking around our beautiful grounds and is perfect for social distancing. Kids and adults had a blast with it at last year’s auction.
The treasure hunt will be free but donations will be accepted. All proceeds go towards our donation match.
This year’s auction will be limited to a limited set of Quilts and our typical food items (canned goods, baked goods, etc.). We expect the auction time to be brief this year and it will end before the Chicken BBQ is served.
Tickets will be available for purchase all day for the Chicken BBQ. Pick up will begin at 12PM. Prices will be: $10 meal or $7 for ½ chicken. The BBQ pick up will be at the Dining hall porch. People are welcome to enjoy their meal at camp.
What Will Not Be Available
We will not be holding the following events at this year’s auction due Covid-19 restrictions
NO Pool, Waterslide, etc.
NO Flea Market (please keep your items until next year!)
We are NOT accepting item donations outside of Quilts and homemade food items both fresh (e.g., Cookies, Pies, Fresh Produce) and preserved (canned food, etc.). IF you want to make an item donation please contact the camp office in advance. We will not be accepting items the day of the auction unless you have notified us in advance.
We appreciate all our auction donors from years past and are not soliciting donations this year due to the impact on local businesses due to Covid-19.
If you want to help camp come and participate in bidding at the limited auction, bring your family to the treasure hunt, and buy some Chicken BBQ.
WE HAVE RECEIVED A GENEROUS OFFER OF A DONATION MATCH UP TO $10K FOR EVERYTHING WE MAKE AT THE AUCTION! So come on out and support the ministry of Penn-York Camp.
