Annual Harvest Dinner and Silent Auction


Thank you to all who joined us or donated items for our Annual Harvest Dinner and Silent Auction! This year's dinner was held Friday, September 14, 2018, at the Price Creek Event Center in Amana.

We sold a record 92 raffle tickets in addition to over 30 dinner tickets. Many new faces joined us for the dinner and we hope to see them return every year and also spend some time with us at the museum. We had a record number of donations given for the silent auction. The crowd bid generously to win over seventy items with everything to choose from locally-crafted wood objects to dining experiences to artwork to mini-vacations. All of these great items helped push our record evening to new heights! We are so appreciative of your continuing support of our important mission.


Listed below are all those who provided auction items. On behalf of the board and staff of the Amana Heritage Society, we thank you most heartily for your generosity.
