Fall Festival Hosting Pie Auction


October 7, 2020

This year's Fall Festival will include a Pie Auction.

A Pie Auction at the upcoming Whitehall Fall Festival will help give back to local non-profit organizations.

Set for Saturday, October 24, pie makers can identify which non-profit they would like the proceeds to be given to. A food drive is also scheduled during the auction for the Whitehall Food Pantry as well as a drive of food and toys for 4 Paws and Reed's Rescue and Rehabilitation.

Chamber Fall Festival Chair Melissa Jenkins is excited about the opportunity to bring additional fun for the community at the upcoming event.

"You can never go wrong with pie. Combining this with as a way to raise money for local organizations, this is really a win-win for the community," she said.

Those interested in baking are asked to bring their pie to the Whitehall Community Center on October 24 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., and at the same time identify which non-profit the pie is being auctioned for. Bidding is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and winners will be announced after the bidding is complete. Any dessert pie is welcome but must be in a 9 to 10" pie plate/pan and must include a cover. Pastries are also welcome. Pies and pastries need to be a non-refrigerated variety.

The pie that receives the highest bid will receive $25 in Whitehall Chamber Bucks. The pie with the most bids will also receive $25 in Chamber Bucks.

For the food drive, residents are asked to bring non-perishable items and those who donate three or more will receive a free Bingo card for the Fall Festival. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

4 Paws and Reed's are mainly in need of food (none that include red-dye please) but will all accept cat dogs and toys, but no rawhide bones.

"We really hope the auction will serve as a way to encourage participation with the festival. The more who participate means the more that goes back to the community," Jenkins said.
