Praise the Lord!  Thanks to His leading and the generous outpouring of donations from businesses and church members, the many who helped with solicitation of donations, mailings, setting up, food preparation and serving, clean up, those who came to bid at the auction (52 numbers were assigned this year), and those who made monetary donations, the auction was a huge success.  
But the true joy comes from helping the youth in the area of Philadelphia where Mid-Town Parish UMC is located with scholarship money to supplement the cost of their higher education. 

  Below are the photos of 3  of the 5 Midtown Parish's young people who benefit from this auction by obtaining financial help in furthering their education.  We are so proud of all of them.
