year’s MCFEE benefit and auction is set for April 8.

The MCFEE Kids Count Benefit Auction is planned for Saturday, April 8, at the Manheim Auto Auction, 1190 Lancaster Road, Manheim. Doors open and the silent auction begins at 4:30 p.m., with the live auction beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The formal dinner hour has been replaced with food stations prepared by Corporate Sponsor, Rettew’s Catering, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Guests will enjoy a hearty display of shrimp cocktail, sliders, a baked potato bar, cheeses, dips, salad, and more.

Jere Gish, Manheim Central alumnus and WGAL morning news anchor, will return as emcee and celebrity auctioneer.

Convenient, handheld bidding technology is back this year, allowing guests to view items, place bids and enjoy express checkout &tstr; all with their own smart phone or tablet.

Attendees can bid on a variety of great items, with something to appeal to all tastes and budget. Many items are uniquely crafted, and one-of-a-kind experiences are part of the evening’s lineup. Themed baskets will be up for bid, as well as gift certificates to the MCFEE Trustees’ favorite restaurants.

Can’t make the event? Support the fundraiser by bidding online from home starting March 27. Preview auction items and bid up until silent auction close the night of the event. Winning bidders will be notified and items are available for pickup at Myer’s Furniture the following week. The live auction remains live, and bidders need to be there in person to experience the excitement of placing the winning bid.
