UUCM Goods and Services Auction

Saturday, Febraury 23, 2019

The Goods and Services Auction, one of UUCM’s major fundraisers, is coming right up! It netted over $5,000 last year! This year’s Auction is set for Saturday Feb. 23 and will kick off with a potluck dinner at 5:30pm.

Here’s how the Auction works: You offer a particular service, and the winning bidder pays the church. As the donor, you can claim as a charitable contribution the amount paid for your donation.

The Auction is not a tag sale, but we do accept a limited number of physical objects of high quality. Speak to Janet Hiller re: suitability of a particular item

  • Complete a paper donation form that you’ll find at the church each Sunday through February 17…
  • Or email your donation information to Janet Hiller. Include a description of your donation, its value, desired starting bid, and your phone number.
  • Please use the signup sheet at the church to indicate what you’ll provide for dinner and how many people we should plan for.
  • Is there a service you’d like to buy if a particular congregant offered it? Let Janet know, and she’ll ask for the donation.
  • Note that we expect payment that night—cash, check, or credit card.

This event is always a lot of fun: bidding can be brisk; Jeff May is a masterly auctioneer; the fellowship is warm, and the food is delicious.
