Westside Annual Auction – Reach for the Moon!
The biggest fundraiser we have as a church -- our benefit auction -- is February 3, 2018. We are Reaching for the Moon, and we invite everyone to contribute to this giant fundraiser by donating and/or volunteering and/or attending and bidding...traveling together on this grand lunar adventure!
Each year, this auction raises funds to pay or our church home and to support our fabulous staff (Bert, Shannon, Cynthia & Alex). Specifically, we are seeking your donations of items (art work, gift baskets, jewelry and other delights to bid on), and experiences (donated travel, hotels, summer cottages, themed dinners…) Your time and talent both in the form of fun offerings and as a volunteer for the auction, is needed and appreciated. Our procurement deadline (collection of commitments/donations so we can start data entry) is Sunday, December 20th this year – If you need ideas for what to offer or are willing to help in anything auction-related, contact auction chair, Viv Monahan email@example.com or Amy Youngblood, volunteer coordinator. firstname.lastname@example.org
Internal donations for the benefit auction:
If you donated last year, consider possibly "renewing" that donation! Or if you did not donate last year and would like to this year, email Viv (email@example.com). Here are some suggestions
- If your church group (men's group, women's group, music group, RE teachers or RE parents) would like to put together a basket of sweet or savory goodies; maybe a couple bottles of wine or a hosted dinner event
- Creating beautiful scarves, jewelry, or pottery
- Hosting an event, such as a Hawaiian themed dinner or wine and cheese party
- We have new ideas this year, which we’ll share at the Sunday auction table in the social hall. Stop By!
