Awesome! That is the only way to describe your support this year. The preliminary total for the 2017 Gala Auction is a wonderful $110,000! Through all the auction items, sales of t-shirts, donations for drinks, and the new cash-n-carry tables, you supported us in an outstanding manner. We thank you so very much!

When you shop at Amazon Smile, and choose the “Waynesboro Area Gala Cancer Auction” as your designated charity, Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase price to the auction. Get the same low prices and wide variety of products as their regular site, plus support your favorite local charity.
You can donate to the auction any time of the year through our secure site on PayPal. You can donate using a credit card or PayPal account. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Supporters of the Waynesboro Area Gala Cancer Auction, you helped us have another fantastic year! Over $88,000 for the 2016 Auction, and it helped push us over the $2 Million dollar mark for our 35 years.
Where did the 2016 money go? Glad you asked . . .
$45,000 to the Hope Lodges in Philadelphia, Hershey, and Baltimore–divided evenly in $15,000 allotments.
$43,000 to other programs and support services in Franklin County.
We thank you, and the Franklin County Unit of the American Cancer Society thanks you.
Volunteers at each year’s kick-off meeting are presented with a number of pamphlets and forms outlining programs sponsored by the ACS, and their continuing efforts in the fight against cancer. Many brochures are available to provide education, and teach self-examination. Contact your local ACS office for copies. If you don’t know how to contact them, visit the ACS Web Site and use their Local ACS Web Pages locator function.
