Visit Winesburg, Ohio: where Americana meets Amish Country

See You at Our Annual Fall Gathering on September 17th!

Thank you to all who purchased raffle tickets online. Online sales for 2022 are now closed.

We’ve got a great line-up of raffle prizes once again this year. Items include a trained pony with harness and cart, a love seat from Yoder’s Home Sofas, Amish-crafted poly patio set, and a two-night stay at the Stone Cottage Inn. 

When you purchase raffle tickets, you are helping to support our community members in need. All proceeds go directly to local families. If you know of someone you would like to nominate to receive support, please email Eli Wengerd at

Thank you!

Your generous contributions to the Annual Fall Gathering auction and raffle helped us raise a record amount for those in need. Last year, the community came together and raised more than double the amount raised the year before for families and individuals facing hardships. 


To all the donors of the auction and raffle items to each individual who purchased or won them at the event, we are grateful for you. Thank you for helping us serve those among us who needs a little help right now.
