Featuring live country and bluegrass music by Blue Country Roots band, also known as The Over The Hill Gang

Chinese auction and yard sale begins at Noon with auction tickets being provided between noon and 3pm.

50/50 raffle with proceeds from the 2021 benefit donated to the Heading Home Center in Middlebury Township operated by Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries, Inc., a volunteer-based, non-profit organization founded in 2001 in Tioga County.

"People who attend the benefit can donate money to help Second Chance or bring a bag of dog or cat food or cleaning supplies," Gaye said. "One hundred percent of the funds we raise will be used to benefit the animals,” he pointed out.

The Heading Home Center can use cleaning supplies, such as bottled dish soap, bleach or disinfectant like Pine-Sol or Lysol as well as towels and washcloths to bathe the cats and dogs and to clean their living quarters, and blankets for dog bedding. 

Donations of any kind of dry or wet cat and dog foods are appreciated. The animals at the center eat 200 pounds of Victor dog food and 4Health cat food a month.
