5th Annual YCCAC Ceilidh & Silent Auction was “sgoinneil” (Scottish Gaelic for “great”)!

York County Community Action Corporation held its 5th Annual Ceilidh and Silent Auction on Friday, November 8th, at Spring Hill, in South Berwick.

“It was a terrific night for all,” said Ericka Sanborn, YCCAC volunteer coordinator and development manager. “We had a great turnout, one of the best ever. And the auction was especially robust, with 40 baskets filled with items up for bid.”

A ceilidh—pronounced kay-LEE—is a social event at which there is Scottish or Irish folk music and singing, traditional dancing, and sometimes storytelling. The YCCAC ceilidh included music by the Press Gang, a Portland-based band that performs the instrumental dance music of Ireland on fiddle, accordion, and guitar. Dancers from the Seacoast Set Dancers, led by Sue Dunlavey, helped those unfamiliar with Irish dance steps on the dance floor. Also joining in on the dance floor this year were the Casco Bay Set Dancers and McDonough-Grimes Irish Dance.

“We are deeply grateful to the many donors who provided gifts for our auction,” Sanborn said. “With each donation, and with the number of guests who turned out for our fundraiser, we’re reminded again of the broad support of our programs by so many individuals, businesses, and other non-profit organizations, in York County and beyond.”
