The 45th annual Fellowship Day and Chicken Barbecue took place this year on a picture-perfect day for being outdoors, having fun and supporting a good cause. Hundreds of persons of all ages spent the day on the Landis Homes campus and participated in a wide range of activities.
The live auction drew in hundreds of bidders to purchase quilts, artwork, collector’s items and experiences. The Fill the Gap part of the live auction raised over $43,000 with straight donations for the Caring Fund. The silent auction included gift certificates, household and food items as well as gift baskets created by team members. There were also baked items, fresh produce and ice cream.
A unique part of the auction was the presentation of the Walk of Honor Quilt. It was recently created by residents to honor the lives of future residents at the time of their passing away as their remains are escorted from the campus. It brought a $2000 donation to the Caring Fund with the understanding that the quilt stays on the campus.
Net proceeds to the Caring Fund from Fellowship Day totaled over $132,000. A deep sense of gratitude was experienced for all who gave time, talent, auction items and bidder donations.
