Auction raises more funds for Haiti missions
The seventh annual New York Haiti Benefit Auction expanded again this year with more items sold on Friday evening and a fish fry added to that night's popular roast beef dinner.
Those changes alone brought in about 1,000 additional people to enjoy the festive atmosphere and a meal, according to organizers.
Two auctions ran simultaneously throughout the day Saturday, and the food concessions were busy from 6 a.m. through the close of the day. Another new feature of this year's auction was a concession selling Haitian foods.
Next year's auction will be held June 15 and 16 at the Yates County Fairgrounds.
