Get Ready for a Helluva Good Time
The annual fundraising auction is almost here!! Our "Helluva Good Time" auction is happening October 17th. Items being offered: some amazing dinners by some amazing cooks, getaways in Chicago and Tucson and Michigan, spa and massage gift cards, golf basket, dinners out and delivered. The list goes on. Exciting isn't it? And we expect that the catalog will be on the UU website by Wednesday, October 7th so you can see it all then.
Auction catalogues are available for online viewing now. Take a peek and see what strikes your fancy!
We are adding a couple of new features:
1) We are augmenting the auction with a 50/50 raffle. We will be selling raffle tickets in the narthex on Sunday - $5/ticket or $20/5 tickets - or you can buy them at the auction. The drawing will be during the auction at the beginning of the live auction. You do not need to be present to win.
2) If you cannot attend the auction, we will be implementing a sealed bid process. If there is an item you wish to bid on, in a sealed envelope indicate the item and the price that you will pay for that item. (We would suggest that you submit the highest price you are willing to pay or you might not win the bid.) We will attach that bid to the item, and if it is the highest offer, or is tied with the highest offer and having been submitted first, you will win the item. This eliminates the need for proxy bidders. Sealed bids can be submitted to the office.
3) Because of the extraordinary quality of meals being offered, we will be closing the tables sequentially.
See you on the 17th !
An invitation from the Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson:
Seek. Serve. Love.
We seek truth in the spirit of freedom, from sources old and new, and from science, art, and all the religions of the world. We serve human need and the world we share, by working for justice and living our own lives with integrity. And most of all, we try to embody, as best we can, the transforming power of love.
