The neighbors that are helped by the PACC funds include many are older folks, some on Social Security, some not yet eligible, some young families and single moms. Individuals assisted are proud people who own or rent their homes. PACC is only assists people with home heating fuel.

Among the items available to the highest bidder will be a Nantucket Seaside Getaway for up to 4 people, a romantic stay for 2 at a Westin hotel in the winners choice of Boston or New York, and an exquisite queen-size quilt, handmade by the Heartfelt Quilters Guild. For the wine connoisseur, KTHO Committee members are again contributing a mixed case of wines.

Every year, the KTHO committee is overwhelmed by the generosity of local restaurants' menu contributions, and anticipate that they will outdo themselves again this year. A line-up of restaurateurs who will provide appetizers, soup and salad, a varied dinner buffet, and a selection of desserts will be available shortly.

Tickets to KTHO are $35 each will be available starting in early December only at Chase Street Market on Main Street in Plymouth, and will be limited again this year.
