Get Ready to Party! UUCPA Auction — Saturday, November 3, 2018!
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 7.
Have a couple of hours? There’s a lot to be done for the auction, and we’ve broken the tasks into easy pieces. Here are three ways you can contribute. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you can do!
- Our regular merchant donators are contacted individually. Spend a couple of hours giving them the usual donation letter and coming back with certificates! We are looking for 4-5 people to participate.
- 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.
- We need volunteers to send emails to folks who contributed last year, asking them what they want to do this year.
Thanks – it will be a terrific party for us all!
