Thanks To Our 2017 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 $253,700.
2017 Shiloh Mennonite Community Benefit Auction
We're grateful and delighted at the record number of participants at the July 8 Shiloh Mennonite Community Benefit Auction. This annual auction benefits both DDC Clinic and the Clinic for Special Needs Children in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In just 10 years, proceeds from the benefit have grown more than 400%. Many thanks to our friends in Shiloh, Ohio who helped raise $40,700 for DDC Clinic in 2017. The 2018 Shiloh auction will be held on July 14.
2017 Spartansburg Auction
Thank you to our friends in Crawford County, Pennsylvania for raising $33,000 for DDC Clinic at the fifth annual Spartansburg Auction Benefit on October 5. The auction is held every year to help support our mission as a number of families from the Spartanburg area travel to DDC Clinic for their children's care. Among the many items donated to the auction were handmade quilts, furnishings, local produce and a horse donated by DDC Clinic's board of directors. Next year's auction in Spartansburg will be on August 10, 2018.
