Join the party at UUCV’s 21st Annual Auction
Saturday Evening, November 11, 2017
Admission only $5 & bring a non-UUCV Friend for FREE!
Come see how our very own talented Artists work their magic to transform the UUCV Meeting House Social Hall and enjoy an evening of food, music, fun and the chance to bid on sign up events, silent auction items, gift certificates, and maybe a surprise or two this year. Each year there is something fabulous to grab your interest. The Auction is not only a fun-filled event but is also UUCV’s biggest fund-raiser of the year. Its success depends on YOU! So, Flappers and Sheiks, Dolls and Gangsters, it’s time to start planning your costume (not required but always welcome!)
Here’s what the evening includes:
***Hors d’oeuvres, Desserts and Bar: There will be a spread of hors d’oeuvres and desserts which are donated by UUCV members and friends (included in the $5 admission fee) along with a cash bar of soft drinks, wine, beer, and maybe even a little bathtub gin. And remember to take a break from gnoshing to check out all the items available and get your bid in on time!
***Sign Ups: Fill up your social calendar with this Auction favorite. Everyone has a chance to sign up for events ranging from themed dinners to a hike in the woods. Please consider being the host for a sign up event. They are the most popular part of the auction and add the most toward our fundraising goal. Let your imagination run free and create an event! Host a dinner and share your favorite cuisine, have a game night, take people to your favorite museum, lead a workshop, or what will YOU come up with?!?
***Silent Auction: Members and friends donate everything from jewelry and artwork to small appliances and kitchen items to helpful skills that are your special talent. There is always an array of high quality items that might be destined to become a gift to someone on your list or maybe a treat for yourself. Be alert so you don’t get outbid. Also this year be on the look out for gift baskets and other specialty items. There is a special area for gift certificates, so please think about any business connections you have that may be willing to donate a service, membership, or discount. Ask them yourself or let us know and we’ll do the asking.
***Live Music: Anyone ready to learn or teach us the Charleston?
***Children’s Auction: The Auction isn’t only for adults! Downstairs in the elementary classrooms children ages 4 and up will have their own Roaring Twenties Auction. There will be cool kid items and each child will receive “Auction Bucks” for purchasing items. Nursery care will be available for our younger friends.
How can YOU make this year’s auction a “Roaring” success?
Participate and contribute in some way. Only YOU can help us achieve the goal of 100% involvement and reach our fund-raising target.
***Attend! Bring yourself, your family and your friends. If you need a ride, we can help. If you can’t attend, please sign up for a bidding buddy and check out buddy. If you cannot be with us, then support the Auction by buying a raffle ticket, donating an event or food, or simply sending a check of support made out to UUCV and designated to the Auction.
*** Volunteer! We need helpers for set up and clean up, check in and check out assistants, silent auction monitors, food servers, etc, etc etc. Think about how YOU can help and sign up when the time comes.
***Donate! This event depends on everyone’s generosity. We need donations of food, drink, sign ups, silent auction items and everything that goes into making the Auction a fun and successful event. Start now to plan what YOU may be able to contribute.
