Every year on Labor Day Monday the Yorkville Community Benefits Association hosts a huge neighborhood party and fundraising event– The Ice Cream Social. This year we will be celebrating our 29th year. The Social is a fun-filled day of food, games, book browsing & buying (huge book sale!), more food, a wonderful produce stand, socializing, educational stuff for the kids, more food, silent auction, raffle for amazing prizes, Cake Walk, face painting and, of course, Ice Cream!
This year will not be an exception! A new addition this year we will be a HUGE second hand sale that we affectionately call “Vintage Values”, our version of a huge yard sale.
Our Silent Auction is truly awesome, featuring unique Anderson Valley items, gift certificates, art, wine and experiences. We also have an amazing raffle, hundreds of Anderson Valley goodies given away, that runs all day.
The Ice Cream Social is a great place to catch up on local news and happenings or to meet new friends. It is also the YCBA’s largest fundraiser. This year we are focusing our fundraising on a new building to house a water tender and other fire fighting apparatus. We are very close to meeting our financial goal. Your participation could help push us over the top. Contact Diane, 707-489-1957 if you have anything to donate or if you’d like to participate or volunteer in any way.
Free food to any fire/EMS personnel that come in uniform.
