Annual UUFR Service Auction

November 5, 2017

We did it!  We raised more than $21,000 for UUFR!!!

Here’s a note from Kathryn Caler, our 2017 Auction Coordinator:
“First and foremost, I am happy to report that our auction was a success! Even after expenses, we cleared $21,000, and we’re still reconciling a few odds and ends which may add to that total.

It did indeed take a UUFR village to pull this off, and I want to say thank you to everyone who made an effort, big or small, which made a difference to its success.  THANK YOU!

The annual UUFR Service Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year!  Join us for a family friendly event with food, fun and opportunities to support the activities of UUFR all year long.

Doors will open at 12:15 p.m. after Sunday service.
Dinner will be served buffet style at 12:45 p.m.
Bidding starts at 1:30 p.m

How:  You can reserve tickets now, or you may buy tickets from Chris Wise on Sundays.  Reserved tickets may be paid for and picked up the day of the auction or on any Sunday in October at Founders Hall “will call.”  (cash or check)

What:  A ticket will get you a bidding paddle, a seat for the service auction, and a full course meal with drinks and a dessert.  Wine and beer will be available for an extra $3 per drink.

Please bring your catalog with you.  You may pick one up when you buy your ticket, or you can download and print it from home.  (We’ll have some extras available at the auction.)

Since we can only seat 150 in Founders Hall, reserve your tickets now!

For tickets, reservations, and pricing, click here.

Childcare:  Free childcare will be provided to those who have reserved/purchased child tickets in advance.  Due to the need to secure child care providers before the event, only adult tickets will be on sale the day of the auction.  A movie will be provided for teens as an alternative to the auction.

Note:  We will end ticket sales at 150 tickets, which is the capacity for Founders Hall.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but this is for your safety and the safety of others, as well as planning and staffing limitations.

There are a limited number of tickets still available, but these will sell quickly. If you’ve already reserved your ticket, you can pick it up the day of the auction.  If we are sold out, please find someone to bid for you (your own proxy bidder) and plan to offer your bids through that person.

…Thank you…
