UU Goods & Services Auction

May 4 @ 6:30 pm 9:00 pm

This year’s UU Goods and Services Auction will be held on Saturday night May 4th! After a long delay due to COVID, we will again have the event right here at church!  The building will be transformed with rooms of amazing auction items.   Heavy hors d’oeuvres, delicious desserts and beverages will be located throughout the church. This wonderful evening of eating, socialization and auction offerings only happens once every two years.  It is a great opportunity to spend time with new and old UU friends in a fun social setting.  The event starts at 6:30 pm – more details and information to come.

We again hope to raise significant funds to support the ongoing ministry of our church. We raise this money when YOU (church members and friends) donate goods, skills, dinners and services and others bid on your offerings.  Examples from the past auctions include:

  • Events (afternoon tea, cocktail party, canoeing, PAF tickets, pontoon ride)
  • Theme dinners (pizza party, BBQ, Greek, Swedish, French, Indian, Vegetarian )
  • Food (dessert-a-month, soup/bread Sunday suppers, cooking classes, homemade wine and beer)
  • “Educational” events (yoga lessons, dance lessons, local micro-brewery beer-tasting party)
  • “Real” services (CSA half share, piano playing, photography, homemade rugs, tutoring, golf lessons, landscaping, music lessons, computer help, food baskets, handyman help, language lessons)
  • Cottage or vehicle use
  • Goods (art work, jewelry, kayak, summer flower bouquet-of-the-month, pottery, furniture, firewood, baskets, clothing)

In addition, please consider soliciting local vendors for items or gift certificates.

Please consider any way that you might contribute (time/donations or both) and contact Sheryl Hemp (wishemp@gmail.com) or (715) 571-0604.

Our next auction committee meeting will be held on Sunday, February 25 at 11:45am at church in Yawkey Hall.  Everyone is welcome to attend as we always need more volunteers and ideas.
