In previous years, the auction started on a Friday night and resumed on Saturday.
"We decided to change the format," volunteer Carol Gibson said. "It will feel different this year, having everything on one night, and we hope the community supports it. … And we changed the date from November 9 in case Solanco's football team has a playoff game."
It will include gift certificates, some artwork, themed gift baskets, jewelry, and other items. The silent auction will begin at 3 p.m. and run until 8:45.
The live auction, which will start at 5 p.m. and go until about 9, will include original paintings by two renowned local artists, the late Steve Roka and the late Doris Hough.
The live auction will also offer tickets to home Eagles football games, boys and girls bikes, collectibles, major gift certificates, and other sports items.
SECA will auction off a season-long family pool pass and a one-day building rental. A two-night stay at Creekside Cottage in Drumore Township will also be auctioned. "There will be lots of surprises in the live auction," volunteer Kim Risk said.
Randy Ranck will be the volunteer auctioneer.
The sale will be held in the Solanco Fair Association's Hoffman Building, Park Ave. and S. Lime St., Quarryville.
A spaghetti supper will be served at 5 p.m., by members of the 2019 Solanco Post Prom Committee.
All of the auction items are donated. Proceeds from the sale will help pay SECA's operating expenses.
While they don't have a firm goal, "we would like to see more than $10,000," Gibson said.
"We're hoping the community will come out for the night, have dinner, visit with friends, and attend the auction. The community has always been very supportive of SECA," Risk said.
