UUCC’s annual Auction — and great big party — happens this Saturday. There is a LOT going on at the auction in addition to the vocal auction (which starts in Sanctuary C at 5 pm). These five tips from the Auction Team will help you stay on top of all the action.
- Come Early! The Chalice Messengers will kick off the party at 3:45 sharp! The Silent Auction and food service will begin at 4:00.
- You can’t bid without a paddle! Pick up your paddle in Room 213 (the old pantry). Please do not bend, fold, mutilate, draw on or throw out your paddle. We reuse these babies every year.
Silent Auction Hustle: If you donated tangible items to the Silent Auction, drop them off in Sanctuary A (Methodist Sanctuary) between 2:30 and 4:00 Saturday. Bidding opens at 4 and closes at 6:45. All Silent Auction tangibles must go home with their rightful owner Saturday night. So if you donated anything or bid on anything, swing by Sanctuary A before you leave the building.
- New this year … a craft fair! Sanctuary A will also house a mini craft fair of small items made by UUCC members and offered at small prices ($2-15 each). These are for immediate purchase, so bring a little cash or your check book and pick up a great little treasure.
- Drink responsibly, but tip generously. ALL tips at the auction bar go directly to support YRUU.
