Spring 2019 Auction RRUUC!

Members and friends have donated services and personalized items that their fellow RRUUCers bid on in a silent auction. It’s River Road’s number one destination to meet others while sharing something you enjoy. It’s also a chance to donate your time and talents to help benefit your congregation and its mission.

How does it work?

  • Beginning Sunday, May 12, in the Fellowship Hall, bid sheets with pictures and descriptions can be perused and bid on. Bid early and often – some donated items/events have limited availability.
  • Bidding continues on the two following Sundays, May 19 and May 26.
  • Winners will be notified of their winnings via email in the week following the auction.

Just a sample of some of the many wonderful things available to bid on:

  • Hotel rooms in Paris! Ooh la la!
  • Getaways to New York State and Maine
  • Trips to Museums and the Capitol
  • Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay
  • Hikes and Water Activities – fun for the whole family!
  • Dinners with friends – Afghan, Fajitas, French Bistro, Greek, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Lamb, Raw, Salmon, Swiss Fondue, plus Beer and Wine Tastings – so many to choose from, so choose many!
  • Card-making Class, Flower Arranging Class, Jewelry Making, Origami (plus Lunch!), Glass Plate Making
  • Life Coaching, Piano Lessons, Yoga Classes
  • Babysitting, Bicycle, Garden and Plant-sitting services
  • Delicious Food – Bread, Cookies, Desserts, Soup

Please note – slight change to bidding in 2019

This year, each person/quantity will go on an individual line, i.e., Jane Doe would bid $35 and John Doe would bid $40 to attend a dinner with the starting bid of $35 and a minimum incremental bid of $5.

There are several items with a single bid amount – no incremental bidding – and a fixed number of winners. Check the bid sheets for these details.
