Silent Auction

Bidding on events (parties, dinners) is a favorite part of the silent auction.  Members and friends in the congregation donate dinners, concerts, teas, parties, classes, music lessons, services and other wonderful events, some of which have been offered each year and are in high demand. Participating in events is lots of fun and a wonderful way to get better acquainted with others in the congregation. 

Non-event items of value that are in new condition, hand made, or antique, including art, jewelry, baskets, needlework, giftcards, event tickets, and offers of your talents as services to others, are very welcomed for the silent auction. Please, no white elephant donations, this is not the rummage sale. Minimum suggested value: $25 per item.

For more donation suggestions, see the link "About Donations" link below.

Live Auction

Professional auctioneer Roscoe Henderson will give you the opportunity to bid on all sorts of wonderful events, excursions, services and merchandise. Join the fun. Cheer the bidders on.

Heads or Tails Game

Guess the flip of the coin by placing your hands on your head or your hands on your tail. Buy up to three chances.

The last person standing wins the POT OF CASH. The more people who play, the BIGGER THE POT.

Raffle

The holder of the winning ticket will claim half of the raffle donations collected on auction night.

Fund a Need

Two years ago we funded playground equipment for young children. Last year we funded improvements to the Narthex . Both made a huge impact in creating warm, inviting spaces!

This year it is time to support our high school youth group by enhancing the now somewhat Spartan loft space where the youth group meets every Sunday. The loft begs for wall and ceiling repair and paint, new flooring, an audio visual system, bulletin board, shelving, cabinetry, counter space, sink, refrigerator, microwave, and furniture.

We can make the loft into a meeting space where our youth will enjoy spending time together. Let’s show our support and make our young adults feel valued!

Substitutes

This year, if you unable to attend an event purchased at the auction, you may sell or give your place to a person of your choice. Alternatively, you can email Membership to let them know that your place can be gifted to a newcomer or new member to help them meet other EUUCers.
