Benefit Blind Auction & Themed Basket Raffle!

On June 22 at 7:00, we will be hosting a Blind Auction and Themed Basket Raffle to benefit one of our camping families who were badly burned during a freak accident. 

The Fricks are a Seasonal camping Family who were life-flighted to the West Penn burn unit, where Diana underwent multiple skin graft surgeries for her burns.  Joe was injured too while trying to extinguish the flames on his wife. 

This benefit is the work of their Seasonal camping family and friends at Meadville KOA.  All of the blind auction items and themed baskets were donations from friends, fellow campers, and local businesses.  All proceeds (100%!) will go to the Frick family to help offset their expenses during their time of need.

The Blind Auction is held by placing new items in brown paper bags!  To add some fun and creativity to this event, we've asked the campers to provide a hint for the bidders.  This fun and crazy event will include items for kids to bid on!  So come join the fun!

Then, immediately following the blind auction, we'll have a "Themed Basket Raffle".  We'll be selling raffle tickets for $2.00 each, 3 for $5.00, or an arm's length for $10.00.  You can "bid" on the basket or baskets of your choosing by dropping one of the raffle tickets you purchased, into the container marked for that basket.  If your ticket is drawn, then you'll be the lucky winner of that basket! 

We hope, if you know the Fricks, or are friends or campers at Meadville KOA, that's you'll come join us this weekend for a weekend of fun and fellowship as we enjoy "Death By Chocolate Weekend" and this fun-filled family event of the blind auction and themed basket raffle!  We thank you for camping with us, and as always, we thank you for your generosity for our friends in need!  THANK YOU!
