It’s That Time Again

UUCV’S 23rd ANNUAL AUCTION

Saturday, November 16, 2019

6:30 to 9:00 PM

Mark your calendar for UUCV’s biggest and best event of the year…the ANNUAL AUCTION. What could be better than food, beverages, entertainment, mixing and mingling with UUCV friends old and new, and the opportunity to bid and sign up for events, gift certificates and services provided by members and friends.

Here’s what the evening includes:

FOOD Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and desserts provided by UUCV members and friends.

BEVERAGES Complimentary coffee and tea and a cash-only beer, wine and soft drink bar.

ENTERTAINMENT Dance the night away or simply enjoy live music provided by musician extraordinaire Brian McPherson and the UUCV Rock ‘n Rollers.

EVENT SIGN-UPS Choose from a wide variety of events, from hikes in nearby parks to dinners at the homes of UUCV members and friends; from game nights to craft workshops; and from dance lessons to fortune telling.

GIFT CERTIFICATES Bid on gift certificates donated by Carlisle area restaurants, shops, salons and more.

WISHING WELL Need someone to mow your lawn? Walk your dog? House sit or babysit? Simply describe the service you need and what you are willing to pay. Members and friends will sign up to provide the service, with all proceeds going to UUCV.

SPECIALTY DONATIONS Bid on a variety of personal services and items provided by UUCV members and friends. You’ll find everything from baked goods, casserole of the month, specialty dinner for a family, gift baskets, handyman and computer services and more.

RAFFLE DRAWING Purchase tickets in advance or on auction night for the chance to win a cash prize.

CHILDREN’S AUCTION No need for a sitter…..kids age 4 and older are invited to participate in their own auction held in the lower level classrooms.

NURSERY CARE Complimentary care for children age 3 and under will be provided.

It’s not too early to be thinking about what YOU might be able to contribute. Here’s some food for thought:

ATTEND Bring your family, friends and kids along. Need a ride? We can make arrangements for you. Can’t attend? We’ll be glad to assign a bidding buddy to represent you.

HOST A SIGN-UP EVENT It doesn’t have to be an extravagant affair! Plan a game night, a hike or an afternoon at the movies.

DONATE/VOLUNTEER We’ll be needing donations of food and beverages; food servers and bartenders; guest check-in and out and more. Look for the volunteer sign-up sheets at Kick-Off Sunday.

JOIN THE TEAM It takes a lot of people to make the auction a success. We’ll be looking for help with soliciting gift certificates; drivers for those who cannot drive themselves; set-up and tear down; food servers; bartenders; check in and check-out clerks and more.

This year’s theme will be revealed at the official Auction Kick-Off following services on Sunday, Sept. 22.  Auction committee members will be available to answer any questions and help with ideas for donations. There will also be sign-up sheets for those who wish to volunteer.

On a final note, we will not feature a silent auction this year so be sure to save those family treasures that you no longer need for the annual UUCV Yard Sale held in conjunction with the Boiling Springs Foundry Day.

Questions? You’ll find a Q&A on UUCV’s website, uucv.org (click on “Events”). Still have questions? Contact Wendy Gebb (wendywinter@comcast.net) or Laurel Belding (ljbelding46@gmail.com).

See you at the auction!
