Spring Auction

 

Spring Services Auction

Match your Interests!     Match your Palate!
Match your Skills!     Match your Fun!

 Every Spring we have a silent auction. Participate in 2018!

 

 

Members and friends donate services and 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?

  • Members and friends donate services and items through April 30.
  • Beginning in early May, congregants peruse tables and displays with donated items in the Fellowship Hall then bid on those items that strike their fancy.
  • Bidding continues through May.
  • Winners are notified of their winnings via email in the weeks following the auction.

       What can I donate?
Your Interests, Your Palate, Your Skills, Your Fun! In the past items have included:

  • music lessons, hours of gardening, stargazing party, museum tour, massage therapy, baby sitting
  • kayaking lessons, tutoring, knitting lessons, hike and picnic, photography portrait, “theme” baskets filled with goodies
  • hosting a special dinner or dessert party in your home – wine tasting, Italian, vegetarian feast, Indian cuisine, chocolate tasting
  • handmade blanket, knitted hat and gloves, homemade pies
  • time at a vacation property, hot air balloon ride, sail boat ride

How can I help connect more people and raise even more contributions for RRUUC?
Allow for multiple winners! Multiple winners increase the number of bids and winners for a dinner hosted in your home; two (or more) winners of music lessons or massages or bike repair; and so on.
