Mark your calendars now for the biggest social event of the season!
"JOY OF SHARING" SERVICE AUCTION (click here for poster)
Saturday May 6, 2017
Doors open at 6:30 pm
Live and silent auctions from 7:00-10:00 pm
All monies raised benefit the church.
MAKE A DONATION!
Print the donation form and return it to the church by April 22.
We are especially looking for fun events that will encourage getting to know each other, such as hosted dinners, hikes, and weekend events for a small group. Small groups and committees-spotlight your activity by putting together a themed gift basket.
Other items that sell well are weekend or weeklong stays in vacation homes, canoeing and boating trips, sports memorabilia, collectibles, handmade crafts, event tickets, restaurant and store gift certificates, bonus travel miles, jewelry, art, and home prepared baked goods or planters. How about going together to offer a dessert or homemade soup once a month?
Services of your time or skills such as teaching a dance class, helping someone learn to use their smartphone, camera, computer or drive a stick shift car, tutoring a student in math or a foreign language, designing a garden, giving guitar lessons, providing babysitting services, or donating time and labor to do yard work.
JOIN THE PARTY! Tickets are on sale now.
Buy a ticket and join in the fun. Suggested ticket prices are only $30 per person and they include a free drink! We’ll have plenty of food to nosh on and there will be a generous supply of libations to purchase. It’s a great time to meet new friends at the church, catch up with old friends and laugh a lot. If you can’t make it, donate a ticket for someone else to participate.
VOLUNTEER TO HELP!
Having many volunteers working together for the common cause of raising funds for the church, while putting on a party will be tons of fun. We need help with food, set up, data entry, decorations, and stage managing the event. Join our Service Auction team! Email Sue Wilson to volunteer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Visit our table in Fiske Hall after services to turn in your donation form, buy tickets and find out how you can get involved. This is good old fashioned fund raising at its best!
