Rich Hill Pie Auction a huge success!

A big group of (approximately 50) pies was sold tonight, totaling just under $29,000, at the 2022 World Record Pie Auction in Rich Hill.

The highest priced pie to sell was baked by the 1st Place winner, Mary Fischer, bringing $3,100 (which incidentally is the exact amount of the Guinness World Record pie in 2012).

Thank you to all who baked, bid, and bought pies this year! I personally want to give a special “thank you” to three candidates for public office who are exhibiting “a commitment to supporting Bates County” right from the start;

Connie Pruden - for Presiding Commissioner
Jami Page - for County Clerk
Dane Diehl - for State Representative And to Bates County Memorial Hospital and Medicalodge for donating pies.

NOTE: This was the 20th year of the pie auction which has raised IN EXCESS of a quarter million dollars to continue this annual celebration.
