New this year will be holding a silent auction of one of a kind gourds along other items that were donated by local businesses. The auction will begin at 4:00 and end at 7:30. All proceeds from this auction will go to benefit Speranza Animal Rescue in Mechanicsburg. Speranza Animal Rescue is a non-profit, 100% volunteer run rescue, rehabilitation center and sanctuary committed to saving the most abused and neglected animals with the goal of finding loving homes for as many of them as possible. Speranza is located on a 17.5 acre horse farm in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, which provides the perfect setting to offer time, patience and love to those animals needing a second chance. Speranza, which means "hope" in Italian, is an all-breed rescue focusing on Pit Bulls and other Bully Breeds.
Make sure to bring a lawn chair or blanket and relax with a beautiful view of the Blue Mountains. If you stay long enough, you can watch the sun go down and the sunset is phenomenal. Have fun making memories with an awesome sale, delicious food, refreshing beer and great music.
