JERRY AND HELEN GAYE BENEFIT FOR THE SECOND CHANCE HEADING HOME CENTER IS SATURDAY, OCT. 23

The seventh annual Jerry and Helen Gaye benefit to raise money for cats and dogs in a Tioga County shelter is Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Howard S. Lines Knoxville VFW Post 6753 at 703 Boatman Road, Knoxville, Pa. 16928.

There will not be an admission or cover charge to attend the benefit, which will begin at noon with live country and bluegrass music played by the four members of the Blue Country Roots band, also known as The Over The Hill Gang. They are: Jerry Gaye of Osceola, Diane Brownell of Lindley, N.Y., Lennard Abbey of Wellsboro and Floyd Young of Mansfield.

The Chinese auction and yard sale will also begin at noon. The auction will include a wide selection of items donated by people who want to help and by regional and local businesses. Among the items will be gift cards, jewelry, toys, clothing, dishes, bakeware, grills, tools, etc. The yard sale will include furniture, planters, bar stools and bar tops, all handmade from logs.

Auction tickets will be provided between noon and 3 p.m. for people to place with the items they want to win. There will also be a 50/50 raffle.

The proceeds from the 2021 benefit will be donated to the Heading Home Center in Middlebury Township operated by Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries, Inc., a volunteer-based, non-profit organization founded in 2001 in Tioga County.

"People who attend the benefit can donate money to help Second Chance or bring a bag of dog or cat food or cleaning supplies," Gaye said. "One hundred percent of the funds we raise will be used to benefit the animals,” he pointed out.

The Heading Home Center can use cleaning supplies, such as bottled dish soap, bleach or disinfectant like Pine-Sol or Lysol as well as towels and washcloths to bathe the cats and dogs and to clean their living quarters, and blankets for dog bedding. Donations of any kind of dry or wet cat and dog foods are appreciated. The animals at the center eat 200 pounds of Victor dog food and 4Health cat food a month.
