The Recipe for Success at Springhill
For years, Springhill in Erie, Pa., has hosted an annual auction featuring popular items that residents, family members and associates enter into drawings to win. Proceeds support the Benevolent Care Program. This past fall, Springhill dedcided to shake things up a little by adding an all-you-can-eat fish fry to the event.
With Springhill's proximity to Lake Erie, fish is a popular and well-loved entree. This event featured fried Lake Erie perch, coleslaw, green beans amandine, twice-baked potatoes and mixed berry crisp a la mode. Needless to say, no one left hungry!
The Springhill Auction and Fish Fry raised funds through the auction, ticket sales and sponsorships (with levels aptly named after fish local to Lake Erie). While previous auctions have raised an average of $3,000 to $4,000, this newly enhanced event raised more than $9,400 for benevolent care - proving that if you put your mind to it, any "fin" is possible!
