Community members are invited to attend the Haystack Supper and Benefit Auction on Friday, May 12, at the Mt. Hope Event Center (8076 State Rt. 241, Millersburg, OH 44654). Funds raised at this event benefit Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare’s Amish Care Fund.
The Amish Care Fund is supported by donations from Amish Churches and fundraisers to help Amish and Plain Church patients who do not have Medicare, Medicaid or other insurance that covers hospice services. Hospice care is compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury. It involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to an individual’s needs.
Carryout for the event begins at 3:30 pm, supper begins at 4 pm, and the live auction is at 5:30 pm.
A traditional haystack supper will be served. Donations for the supper are welcome.
Attendees can build their own plates with crushed crackers, rice, taco-seasoned ground beef, shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, and green peppers topped with warm cheese sauce, sour cream, taco sauce, sweet and sour dressing, and crushed nacho cheese flavored tortilla chips. Dessert includes brownies and soft-serve ice cream. Coffee, water, and a variety of pop will be available.
Special thanks to Steve Chupp Auctions, auctioneer of the event. The auction will include indoor and outdoor furniture, quilts, yard tools, baked goods, power tools, flowers, and more. If you have a donation for the auction, please contact Sam Troyer at 330.600.8855.
