The Silent Auction is Open!
Thanks to the generosity of all of our donors and the hard work of the Auction Team, bidding for this year’s Silent Auction treasures has begun! We have items that will appeal to every bidder and fit every budget, from hand-knit wrist warmers to a home-cooked Cajun meal. Over forty items are available. Be sure to arrive early for the service on Sunday so you can peruse the tables in the North Lobby, bidding on those items that catch your eye. Is it too early to start shopping for birthday or holiday gifts? We don’t think so!
The Live Auction will be held Saturday, May 18, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. The Silent Auction will close that night. Tickets are being sold at UCN every Sunday through May 12, and the cost is $15 per person. You may also purchase tickets from the Administrative Assistant during the week, Tuesday-Friday or online at http://bit.ly/UCNtickets2019 . Tickets sold at the door the night of the auction will be $20. Each entry fee gets you unlimited appetizers and one drink, whether a soft drink, beer, wine, or a signature “speakeasy” alcoholic drink from the 1920s. Additional drinks can be purchased that night.
Early next week members will receive an email with the electronic catalog attached. It will also be attached to the Northliner. Please watch for it and feel free to forward the catalog to your friends!
Wine donors: in the Ben Franklin Room we have a sign-up list we would like you to fill out. If possible, indicate the value of the wine you are donating, the type of wine it is, and your name. Add your name if you already dropped off wine before we created the sign-up sheet.
Card tables and small patio tables: please bring them to UCN the week of May 12, or before noon on May 17. Make sure your name is on the bottom so you will get your table back after the auction!
If you would like to volunteer in any capacity to help make Auction 2019 a success, please get in touch with one of the Auction Committee members listed below. Thanks to everyone who has already volunteered. We will be getting in touch with you shortly!
