Two-year-old Miles Willhide stole the show at the FCMC Foundation dinner auction, making the winning bid on a John Deere pedal tractor donated by Smith’s Implements in Mercersburg. Fulton County Medical Center Foundation Auction Committee is pleased to announce its annual dinner auction brought in nearly $29,000. It was quite a night. Once again the combo of Helen Overly and Lyle Reed made for an exciting evening. The highest bid was for a suite at PNC Park for a Pittsburgh Pirates game donated by Eckert Seamans and purchased by orthopedic specialist Dr. Curtis Goltz. The series of Mark Twain Noe prints also proved to be valuable ticket items, coming in at just under $2,500 for the four sold.

However, it was 2-year-old Miles Willhide who stole the show by bidding on a John Deere pedal tractor donated by Smith’s Implements of Mercersburg. He didn’t win it at first, he was outbid by Community State Bank of Orbisonia, but the bank donated it back, and he got his wish of being highest bidder next time around. He got right on it and awed the crowd.

Stay tuned for the Wound Care Services grand opening to unveil its new hyperbaric oxygen bed chamber. The proceeds of the dinner auction benefit the new chamber.

Anyone still wishing to donate money should contact the Foundation office at 717-485-6322.
