Our Winter Lights Service Auction was a success – we raised money for our church while eating yummy food and drinks and socializing with friends. Thanks to all the volunteers and supporters!
Shortly, the “Winter Lights” annual UUCLB Service Auction will be here. Mark your calendar for Saturday, January 25th. The annual UUCLB big party blowout will take place in Wylder Hall! Doors open at 6 pm! Admission is free and so is the food.
This year’s live music will be led by Jim Ruggirello on piano, David James on Guitar and Ricardo Marotta on drums. They will keep the party going until 7 pm when the live Auction begins. Our live auctioneers bring humor and suspense to a fun time. Learn more.
In addition to our live auction and our silent auction, we will many gift baskets that you may buy a tickets to win! We will have our Winter Boutique with jewelry and other donated items for you to choose from to purchase and for the first time, a “Wine Pull”. You donate a reasonable set amount of cash, and then pick an over $20 bottle of wine to take home. The catch? The wine bottles are undisclosed, making it a blind pull.
Our Annual Service Auction is more than just a fundraising event. It is a night of fellowship and community, a space to relax and socialize with our church family, for more than a cup of coffee after service on the Patio. We are very excited to see what adventures this year’s offerings will bring and what smiling faces we’ll get to reconnect with. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
How To Donate
This is a big group effort and we need our members and friends to volunteer and provide donations. Auction donation tables will be out on the patio after Sunday services with sign-up sheets for appetizers and desserts. Now is the time to pull out that favorite dessert recipe you like, or appetizer you love to make. New to the menu this year will be Sopes. Eduarda will be returning to the kitchen but this year she has decided to shake things up a bit.
There are several ways to donate, the first one is the easiest and most convenient. To make it easy you can submit your donation form(s) right now, or at any time before Sunday January19th. Just click link here for the donation form to fill out the form and submit. Or print the form from the Auction website uuclb.org/WinterLights, fill it in with pen or pencil, and turn it in to the Auction Donation tables after Sunday Service.
Other things you can donate to the Auction are large new or slightly used items and high-end gift baskets for the silent Auction.
