The UUCPA Auction is the biggest and best party of the church year! Be sure to mark your calendars now. You don’t want to miss the delicious food, wine, live music, and plenty of fun for the kids. There’ll be lots of parties and other stuff to bid on in the silent auction, plus 10 or so fabulous items in the live auction. And it’s all free!
Of course, it takes many of us working together to make the party great, so start thinking about what you’d like to offer – a party, a lunch, a dinner, an outing, a service, something delicious to eat, something handmade, art, or anything else you can think of. You can offer something by yourself, or with friends, or with an organized group (e.g. Choir, Chalice Circle, Committee, Board of Trustees). The deadline to get donations in the catalog is October 27.
We’ll have an auction table in the patio after each service. We need friendly volunteers to staff the table and sell raffle tickets, help folks sign up to help on auction night, and accept donations. It’s only a thirty-minute shift, and you talk with lots of great people. If you can help one or more days, sign up at the patio table on Sunday or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have a favorite restaurant or store that you visit often? Pamela (email@example.com) can give you a letter to take to them asking for a donation, like a discount on a meal. You’d be surprised at how many would be pleased to participate!
