About the Country Fair & Auctions
For 35 years, Youth For Tomorrow’s Country Fair & Auctions has been a beloved community event and a vital fundraiser that makes it possible for us to help any child who needs us. Every year as many as 20,000 people come and enjoy free rides, games and amusements along with great food, music and, of course, three big auctions. These funds are particularly critical in a time such as now.
The global pandemic has disrupted—and even slowed to a halt—much of our daily lives. But unfortunately, crisis situations facing young people in our community have not slowed down. Drug and alcohol abuse is on a dramatic uptick. Financial strains are pulling families apart at the seams. Criminal enterprises like gangs and sex trafficking rings lure in young children who are adrift and unsupervised.
Youth For Tomorrow hasn’t slowed down, either. Our counseling appointments are at all-time record numbers.
Our new adolescent substance abuse program in Warrenton just launched. We are accepting new intakes to our residential program weekly. Youth For Tomorrow is needed now, more than ever. And your support is needed now, more than ever.
Due to local and state restrictions in response to COVID-19, this year’s event will look different than in past years. Because we are restricted on the number of people who can gather, we are pivoting the event in new and different ways. The live and silent auctions will move online. Sponsors will receive a “Country Fair in a Box” to enjoy a “pop-up event” at your specific office location. We look forward to returning to our “usual” family-friendly community event on campus in 2021 when it is safer to do so.
Can we count on you to step forward in leadership and generosity to serve as a sponsor for our upcoming 35th Annual Country Fair Auctions fundraiser?

We know these are challenging times for everyone, and we are so grateful for your support at any level. If you are in a position to do so, could you consider possibly giving at a higher level than last year?
