Auction 2017 – The Roaring Twenties – Saturday Nov 11

It’s the Berries! Whether you are a Bearcat, a Joe Brooks, or a Mrs. Grundy, we want YOU at this Sockdollager. It is sure to be a hotsy-totsy evening with whoopee for everyone. (Before you get too excited, check the definitions!) There will be eats and giggle water along with many sign up events, silent auction items and gift certificates to purchase. This is our biggest fund-raiser of the year and, no hooey, it depends entirely on your generous donations of food and hooch, events, and silent auction items along with your mazuma and kale to support UUCV.

To help you know your onions, Sunday, September 10 is “Kick Off” Sunday for the Auction. During coffee hour Auction team members will provide treats for your enjoyment and will be available to answer questions. There will be an Auction information table in the social hall with donation forms and a volunteer sign up poster explaining what is needed and how YOU can contribute. Everyone is needed to be a part of making Auction 2017 – The Roaring Twenties the Bees Knees!
