Slated this year for August 2 and 3, the 48th Annual Ohio Mennonite Relief Sale moves to an indoor facility, the Buckeye Event Center (BEC) in Dalton, Ohio. The new location for the two-day event allows attendees to enjoy the many activities that are offered, regardless of hot weather or rain. The 2013 Ohio Mennonite Relief Sale includes live music, breakfast, food and vendor booths and children’s activities, as well as cornhole and volleyball tournaments. Multiple auctions will be held, including a Silent auction, Art and Collectible auction, Wood and Tool auction, and a Quilt auction. A 5K run is also part of the annual fundraiser.
The Relief Sale begins on Friday afternoon, with food and vendor booths opening at 4:00 pm. The evening program begins at 6:30 pm. Performers include the Loren Glick Family and Holmes County Bluegrass. Friday’s guests will be able to preview Saturday’s auction items, as well as participate in a Silent Auction of theme baskets and other donated handmade items.

On Saturday morning, breakfast starts at 7:00 am. Breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits, and more. The Run for Relief 5K will be held at 8:00 am.  At 9:00 am, the Art and Collectible, Wood and Tool auctions will begin, followed by the Quilt auction at 10:00 am.  Gerber’s Chicken BBQ, Laotian egg rolls, homemade ice cream, and much more will be available for lunch.
