Experience the excitement of an old-fashioned Amish Quilt and Craft Auction on Nov. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Metzenbaum Center, located at 8200 Cedar Road, in Chesterland. Early risers may also enjoy a hearty all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast, complete with Geauga County's rich maple syrup from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the school gymnasium. Admission and parking to the auction are free. The pancake breakfast will cost $7 for adults, $4 for children 3 to 12, and children 2 and under are free, payable at the door.
Guests at the Quilt & Craft Auction will have an opportunity to bid on more than 30 hand-made Amish quilts, Amish hand-made wood furniture, crafts and much more. A silent auction, Chinese raffle, Amish bakery, and the cash and carry Holiday Shop will round out the day's activities.
"There are always hundreds of items to bid on at our Silent Auction and Chinese Raffles held in the halls of the Metzenbaum School and beautiful handmade items in the live auction," said Patti Gallagher, chairperson of the Metzenbaum Quilt & Craft Auction." Again this year will be two 50/50 drawings at 12:30 p.m. and also at the end of the live auction.
Sponsored by Families and Friends of the Metzenbaum Center, proceeds will go to support the children and adults with developmental disabilities served by the Geauga County Board of Developmental Disabilities. In the past, money raised by the Quilt & Craft Auction has been used to fund Therapeutic Riding Programs, Special Olympics, summer camps, dances, Christmas program, summer picnics, family resource program, enrichment program, senior prom and class trips and other special events.
