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. Stay tuned for the November 13th, 2021 updates starting in late summer 2021!
Thank you to all the participants, volunteers, and donors for your support in the 2020 auction! We weren’t sure if an online auction could be successful, but it was and it was fun too!
While the 2020 auction is over, there are still a few items (parties, services, etc) with open spots. These items can be purchased now online. Please browse the catalog of open items and use the buy now button to purchase. The catalog can be found here: charityauction.bid/uucpa2020auction. More information can be found below.
Finally, if you have not picked up your physical items, please contact Pamela Schure (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange for pickup. And if you are hosting a party or offering an event, we’ll let you know who your participants are in short order.
Auction bidding for silent auction items is done via the auction site: charityauction.bid/uucpa2020auction

We will not be printing a catalog this year. You can see the catalog online, at: https://charityauction.bid/uucpa2020auction
It would not be a party without food. Book your party box and bottle of wine. We have veggie and non-veggie options for you. There are even kids boxes! Lisa has created a fun, tasty selection you can take home or have delivered on Saturday afternoon. We’ll be in contact with you so you can let us know which delivery option you want.
