Our annual Community Auction is going virtual this year! It kicks off October 11, 2020 at noon and will run until November 22, 2020. This year we are using a platform called 32auctions. You will be able to bid on auction items from the comfort of your own home using your computer, tablet or smart phone! Once the auction is set and ready to go, a link will be sent out to all our church members and friends inviting you to participate. Using the link, you will be prompted to set up your 32auctions account and then you can bid on all our auction offerings, so simple! Several other UU churches have used this platform with great results and we are excited to be able to bring the auction to you this year.

We hope you will join in the fun and participate in this Auction this fall.

The Community Auction is about making connections with other UU’s while supporting our church and outreach. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing recommendations, we are getting creative this year! In lieu of using our building, we will be offering up our ZOOM accounts to members to schedule virtual events, and our parking lot to schedule “drive in” events. What can you donate?!

Categories this year include: Getaways and Cabins, Outdoor Adventures, Lessons and How-to’s, Services and Honey-do’s, Travelogues, Home Cooked (meals & desserts), Socially Distanced Meals and Parties, Handmade Items, Community Events (if available), Gift Certificates, and More!

If you are planning on donating a social event or a dinner party, consider one incorporating social distance guidelines like an outdoor picnic or barbecue in the park (6 feet apart of course!). A “drive in” style ice cream social, “tailgate” dinner party, or a dance outside your own car in the parking lot of the church. If entertaining is not your thing, perhaps you have a skill to teach (craft lessons anyone?!) or an interesting travelogue to share. These too can be scheduled as a ZOOM meeting with private access to your item winners only. Donations of gift certificates, baked goods, homemade dinners, handmade items, arts and crafts, etc. can have delivery arranged to homes via no-contact drop off options. For services such as yard work, pet sitting, computer help, and Outdoor Adventures, we recommend that participants practice social distancing recommendations and understand that participation is at their own risk. Do you have another creative idea? Let us know so we can work out the details with you!

The Community Auction is our church’s biggest fundraiser of the year. It has a twofold purpose: to foster interpersonal connections between members and friends of our church, and to bring in much needed revenue to help fund our valuable in-house programs as well as make funds available for community outreach and action. All proceeds go into the UUCS General Fund.

Members can participate in the auction in two ways. One is to contribute some type of donation (see paragraph above for several great examples!). The other way is to sign up for and agree to pay for one or more donation.

Donors receive a list of who has signed up for their event and bid winners receive an itemized list of everything they have signed up for along with the total amount owed to UUCS.
