The Jedediah Thomas Smith Memorial Luncheon

A lot of you have been asking about our largest event, the Jedediah Thomas Smith Memorial Luncheon which was a great success last year and we're hoping will be again this year. The date has been set for August 27, 2011 and we are in the preliminary planning stages.

The Luncheon will be held at the Great American Saloon in Red Lion, Pennsylvania on August 27, 2011 from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. We feature live music, buffet style all you can eat food (usually casual fare such as salad, chicken fingers, pasta salad, mozzarella sticks, a variety of snack trays, meatballs, etc. and plenty of desserts) a cash bar, a large silent auction and raffle, face painting and t-shirt sales.




Last year we welcomed over 400 members of the community and beyond for an afternoon of honoring children who have lost their battle with pediatric cancer but whose spirits remain prominent in our lives. That one afternoon raised $11,434!





We are looking for raffle and silent auction donations for this year's luncheon.
Last year's silent auction items included: a four wheeler, handmade rag rugs, a handmade apron, handmade baby blankets, a Longaberger basket, a Pampered Chef basket, salon and spa baskets, home improvement baskets, jewelry, local art, three different wine tasting and winery tour baskets, a Crayola basket, a Dutch Wonderland basket, an iPod nano, a gym membership, a toy robot, a Penn State basket, a Baltimore Orioles basket, Hershey Bears tickets, and much more.
Raffle items included: gift certificates for massages, car maintenance, clothing stores and restaurants, sports tickets and jewelry.


To donate or for more information please contact us at Your donation is tax deductible and supports the fight against pediatric cancer. We will be updating frequently about the luncheon, our needs, how to donate and joining us for the day. 

Thanks everyone!
