YES, it’s time to start thinking about this year’s UUCPA AUCTION on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 5:30 – 9 PM! What can you do to make it terrific?
You already know it will be the biggest and best social event of the UUCPA year, with delicious food (free), wine (free), live jazz music by @Jazz (free) , balloons from Hey Balloon Lady (free), a Kids’ Auction (free), a Silent Auction (free until you win something), and a Live Auction presided over by our masterful auctioneer Sven Thesen (free and greatly entertaining, and well worth anything you spend on bids!). It’s also a big fund-raiser for UUCPA, so enjoy the free party and being with a lot of friends, and THINK GENEROUS!
Lisa Helmonds and I (Pat Thomas) will be at the Auction Table every Sunday with SIGN-UP SHEETS and a list of things that need to be done before, during, and after the Auction (lots of moving parts, lots of fun things to choose from).
Please also think about what you can offer for the SILENT AUCTION or LIVE AUCTION. Home-baked or cooked or preserved things to eat? Treasures? Hand-Knit (-crocheted, -painted, -sewn, -crafted…) items? Hikes or outings or events you can organize? Lunches or dinners or parties you can host? Skills you can teach or services you can offer? Let your imagination bloom with fun ideas, and feel free to discuss possibilities with Lisa or me (the office has contact information).
When you’re ready, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of what you’re offering and the number you’re offering If it’s an event, pick a date (or give a few possible dates) as well. The CATALOG DEADLINE is Monday, October 14, but the sooner the better, PLEASE! AND PLAN TO BE THERE — EVERY ONE OF US!
