This year the proceeds will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House of Scranton, PA.  Funding enhances the ability of the Ronald McDonald House to provide a home away from home for families with seriously ill or injured children in area Medical Facilities.  They have been providing these programs for over 30 years since a group of community leaders came together to open the Ronald McDonald House in Scranton in 1986. McDonald’s is a partner in care and provides, through local donations, about 10% of our operating budget. The other 90% comes from gifts from individuals, corporations, organizations and foundations who support our mission.

We are requesting a donation from you to auction at our event, which will be held on May 23, 2017.
The item(s) can be mailed to the address below or can be picked up by a board member who is located in the area.

If you wish to drop items off locally, please contact us.

All mailed items should be sent to:

c/o Chris Pawlowski
Chester County Justice Center
201 West Market Street, Suite 2100
West Chester, PA 19380

A sincere “Thank You” is extended to those who donate items for this worthy cause.
