Love for Steelers help drives Mechanicsburg library auction

The Joseph T. Simpson Public Library credits Steelers Country for the library’s recent success with its online auction.


Last week’s auction involved some feverish bidding on four tickets to the Steelers’ home game this fall. The home game tickets were both the top grossing and the most bid upon item in the auction. Another Steelers item — a Hines Ward autographed helmet — was also in the top five.


Overall, the 180 items on the auction block helped the library net almost $10,000, surpassing the library’s goal of $6,000 for the auction.


“Our event was incredibly successful because of donor generosity and the enthusiastic competitiveness of our auction bidders,” said Library Director Sue Edrman.


Other favorites in the online auction were a weekend getaway to Gervasi Vineyard, Hotel Hershey Resort and Spa gift certificate, a hot air balloon ride, an iPad and specialty baked goods.
