The Silver Birch Foundation held its first annual dinner and auction at the Old Barn Out Back.

The foundation was created to help further the mission of the Area Agency on Aging 3. The night featured live musical entertainment for attendees to enjoy while they ate their dinner. Both a silent and a live auction were held with items such as golf packages and gift baskets. Ohio State and Browns tickets as well as signed merchandise from the Cavaliers were also auctioned off. Every single item was donated, meaning that all proceeds from the auction will go to benefit the Area Agency on Aging 3.

"A big secret in our community is that elders are being exploited and abused by family members, friends in the community, or scams that are happening across our nation, and there's really no funding to help support them," says C.O.O. for the Area Agency on Aging 3, Jacqi Bradley.

Turn out for the event surpassed expectations, and the foundation hopes to hold another auction in the future.
