The 37th Annual, 2021 Hospice& Community Care Labor Day auction will be held in person on September 4 and 6 at the Solanco Fairgrounds, in Quarryville. The fun, family-friendly event is a fundraiser that helps provide hospice, palliative, supportive and bereavement services to patients and families, regardless of their ability to pay.


Participants can enjoy locally made homemade delights like apple fritters, savory breakfast logs, smoky chicken barbecue and refreshing, hand-spun milkshakes, available all day, beginning at 7:30 a.m. A Labor Day Auction Club pass is available upon a $100 tax-deductible donation, providing unlimited food on both event days.


Auction items include vacations and getaways, quilts, jewelry, art, sports memorabilia, plants, indoor furniture, sheds and outdoor furniture. The Day of Care auction also provides an opportunity to gift $192, the average cost of one day of care for someone in need of hospice services. Donations of new quilts, jewelry, tools, gift baskets, original art, gift cards and vacation packages will be accepted through August 23.


Tickets for the 50/50 raffle can be purchased online. Half of the net proceeds will go to the winner and the other half will be used to provide personalized, quality care and comfort for families facing end-of-life issues or coping with a serious illness or loss. The winner will be announced from the fairgrounds at 4:30 p.m., September 6. Participants do not need to be present to win.


“We are so glad to be back in person this year and welcome everyone to join us for this very worthy cause,” shares Holly Cheek, special events coordinator. “With your support at the auction, we can continue to provide quality care and comfort to patients and families when they need it most.”


Admission and parking are free. Location: 101 Park Ave., Quarryville. For questions or to schedule donation appointments, call Holly Cheek at 717-391-2434 or email [email protected] For more information, visit
