About The Auction
The UUCPA Annual Auction is our biggest fund-raiser and FUN-raiser. As most of you know, the auction is in a state of transition this year. Pat Thomas has moved away after 20 years of working on the auction and Lisa Helmonds is transitioning out to do other work. This leaves a huge gap to be filled.
The Auction Committee needs more people willing to take on parts of the auction that were previously done by Pat and Lisa. Pamela Schure is leading the effort to organize the auction tasks into smaller parts that can be done by many people. Lisa will be available to train you on any of the tasks that need to be done and will provide support during the transition.
We need some new, creative, and fun-loving people with fresh ideas to step up and help to continue this best party of the year. The timeline for the auction is as follows:
- July 19 Start Sign-ups
- Sep. 9 to Oct. 28 Patio presence
- October 7 Donation deadline
- October 8 to 12 Edit/print catalog
- October 14 Handout catalogs
- November 3 Auction
- November 4 Auction closure
