Annual Benefit Auction a Success!

Last Saturday, over 150 people enjoyed beautiful weather, delicious food, and great fellowship at Camp PARC's Annual Benefit Auction. While the event has, for the last three years, raised an average of over $18,000 per year toward camp scholarships and programs, the net proceeds this year exceeded previous fund raising records by nearly 10%. The event was made possible by a combination of over 500 generous auction item donations by businesses and individuals around the community and the nation and the selfless contribution of time by over 80 volunteers.

"We at Camp PARC are truly indebted to the auction donors, financial contributors and countless volunteers who gave their time and energy to create a wonderful event", commented Camp PARC Executive Director Ted Risch. "The amazing gift of funds and heartfelt support of the community has made it possible for us to continue to serving the mentally disabled throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania."

Each year the benefit auction seems to gain in terms of excitement, sophistication, and sheer entertainment. On top of the delicious homemade food and bake sale, this year there was an enormous yard sale, an added Silent Auction compentent  and the expansive live auction, led by Mishler Auction Services and other volunteer auctioneers.

Please support these businesses and individuals that have so generously helped Camp PARC. A simple Thank You, can go a long way.
