Join us at UUCV’s 20th Annual Auction

Saturday, November 5 from 6:30 – 9 P.M.

 Admission just $5   *Bring a non-UUCV Friend for FREE!


On this magical night the UUCV Meeting House Social Hall will be transformed into Alice’s fantasy land filled with food, music, fun and a chance to bid on everything from participation in fabulous dinners, hikes, workshops of all kinds, game nights, bicycle rides, and much, much more.


For those of you new to UUCV, our annual auction is a highlight of our church year. Not only is it our biggest fundraiser, it’s also a fun-filled evening. Here’s a preview of how the evening will unfold:


* 6:30 P.M.: Hors d’oeuvres, Desserts and Beverage Bar: There will be plenty of hors d’oeuvres and desserts donated by UUCV members and friends (included in the $5 admission

fee) along with a cash bar of soft drinks, wine and beer.


*Sign-Ups from 7 – 9 P.M.: A favorite for Auction-goers, Sign-Ups have always been the most popular and fun way to fill up your social calendar for the year. Everyone has an equal chance to attend events – from the first to the last one to sign up. Come and check it out!

**Think about coming up with an event or two that you can offer for this event. Themed dinners are always popular, or do you have a vacation home you could offer for a weekend, or a museum trip, art tour, or a day trip of any kind. Let’s think outside the box!


*Silent Auction from 7 – 8:30 P.M.: If you’re looking for that something special check out the Silent Auction area to bid on a variety of high quality items for your family, friends or to splurge on yourself!  **Do you have any business connections who might donate a service, offer a membership or restaurant gift certificate? Ask them or let us know, and we’ll do the asking!
