This is a big event! You are invited to help a great cause and get your hands on some handmade and crafted items at this Saturday's Amish auction to benefit a little boy and his family.

A family of a little boy who has Down syndrome needs help to cover their medical bills after a recent surgery. The Amish pay for their bills in cash and the auction will attempt to raise enough money to cover the expenses.

According to an  Olean Times Herald  article:

It is the second time the Amish community in the Little Valley, Mansfield, Otto and East Otto areas have held an auction at the fairgrounds to help pay medical bills. The previous auction raised nearly $140,000.

A pre-auction breakfast gets underway at 6am Saturday and if you would like to make a contribution, make checks payable to Hertzler Hospital Fund at the Bank of Cattaraugus in Cattaraugus or Cattaraugus County Bank in Little Valley.
