UUCS 2012 Community Marketplace Annual Church Fundraiser
Oct 26 through Nov 18
What's Up for Auction?
The UUCS Community Marketplace is our annual opportunity to share the things we are passionate about with our fellow UU’s as we donate and bid on items that range from picnics, days at the lake, dinner parties, and sing-a-longs to lessons and how-to’s, home cookin’ and more!
Check out the Marketplace Catalog by clicking here. See below for more information about how the Community Marketplace works.
How the Marketplace Works
Beginning in September, you will be encouraged to donate an event or service or adventure that you enjoy and want to share. Or two, or more! See the Suggested Donations List for ideas, and remember you can team up with one or more friends…
Donation Forms are available by clicking the link or at the Marketplace Table in the Friendship Hall between and after our Sunday services. If you wish to donate the same item as last year, just give us the updated information - we want to make it easy!
All the Marketplace items are activities (dinners, parties, services, etc.) not “things.”
Each donation is detailed on a separate Bid Sheet, which are posted on the walls of the Friendship Hall from Friday October 26 through Sunday November 18.
You can get your bid number at the Friday Preview Party on Oct 26, or between and after Sunday services from Oct 28 through Nov 18, but get yours early, as popular items sell out very quickly.
Using your bid number, place your bid amounts on items you wish to purchase. Some items are a fixed price for a limited number of people - a dinner with places for 6 guests, for example. Some items go to the highest bidder - such as use of a vacation home for a week.
The Marketplace closes at noon on November 18. No need to be present to win, you will receive an invoice and information on who purchased the items you donated. You can pay by mail, or drop a check in the basket at church, marking it "Community Marketplace."
All Marketplace proceeds add to our church operating funds.
