Ohio Mennonite Relief Sale and Auction
The Ohio Mennonite Relief Sale is a benefit auction held annually on the first Saturday in August. The sale is staffed solely by volunteers and proceeds go to Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). MCC is active in disaster relief and aiding the poor around the world.
The 2015 Relief Sale will be the 50th Anniversary of the Ohio Mennonite Relief Sale. It is held annually on the first Saturday in August (August 1, 2015). On Friday, July 31 this year, we'll have an open house beginning at 4pm. Come for Gerber's BBQ Chicken dinners, Laotian egg rolls, Amish noodles and fry pies, homemade ice cream and more. A music program featuring John Schmid, Les Gustavson-Zook and Tim Shue will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Relief Sale this year.
Saturday's events begin with breakfast at 7am. The Wood and Art & Collectibles auctions begin at 9:00 am on Saturday and the Quilt auction begins at 10:00 am. All items are donated to our Quilt, Wood, and Art Auctions. We auction over one hundred handmade Amish & Mennonite quilts as well as a wide selection of quality locally-made furniture. The Art and Collectible auction features originals, prints, pottery and antiques.

A Volleyball Tournament, 5K Run and 24 Hour Bicycle Ride will take place during the sale. Registration information is available on our website.
