Each year in November, the church auctions goods and services at a wonderful party.  Here is what the All-Church Auction looked like in 2020. We raised over $18,000 and even better – built a strong sharing community in the process.

This year’s auction is November 13th, 2021. We are planning to hold this year’s auction online and we are currently seeking items to be auctioned.

Donating an Item

Please submit your auction item using the auction site donation form: charityauction.bid/uucpa2021auction

Catalog

We will not be printing a catalog this year. You can will be able to see the catalog online, at: https://charityauction.bid/uucpa2021auction

Bidding

Auction bidding for silent auction items is done via the auction site: charityauction.bid/uucpa2021auction

How to bid

  • Visit: charityauction.bid/uucpa2021auction
  • Go to the catalog and browse items.  Items available for bidding will have a “Bid Now” button.
  • Click/tap on the Bid Now button to bid.
  • When you make your first bid, you will need to register as a bidder.  Enter your name, email address, phone number, and address (optional) to register as a bidder.  You will get a confirmation email to confirm your account.
  • Bid on as many items as you would like.
  • Use the “Show me” filter to see items you have bid on, items you have been outbid on, items you have won, and items by any category.
  • When the auction closes, go to your “My Account” page to see which items you have won.
    • Pay directly on that page via credit card (or indicate that you will pay by check)
    • Enter a checkout note to declare if you prefer to arrange with the seller for pick up or if you’d prefer to pick your items up at UUCPA
    • If you pay via check, please mail your check to UUCPA c/o Auction

Bidding does require you to register your email address with our auction service provider, Auctria.  Please contact auction@uucpa.org if you need help.

Volunteer

Yes, we still need volunteers. And no, you don’t have to sit at a table on the quad. Please contact auction@uucpa.org if you have ideas or even enthusiasm and a few hours to share with us.
