“Lime Spring Farm is a wonderful venue for this occasion, and we are pleased to add an antique live auction to our already popular silent auction,” said Virginia Kirchner, chair of the 2013 Gourmet Gala. “Every participant, from the restaurants to the sponsors, gets terrific exposure with  a cross section of Lancaster County.”  

The gala committee is contacting area companies about sponsorships that range from $2,500 to $250.  Each comes with benefits.

Kirchner said the live auction will focus of quality antiques. “Our preference is for items about the size of a coffee table or smaller,” she added. “This makes them suitable for transport by the buyers.”

Located at 2452 Marietta Avenue, Lime Spring Farm has been a premier wedding destination and corporate events site. Its buildings date back to the 1700’s.
Auction item donors and sponsors should contact the Historic Preservation Trust at ceckert@hptrust.org.

The Gourmet Gala is the Preservation Trust’s major fund raiser each year. Some 30 of the top area restaurants, caterers, bakeries and chefs will be offering their feature dishes. Breweries, wineries and coffee shoppes also will be offering their best.
