Mark your calendars now for the UCS’ Talent Auction
Friday, January 24th, 2014 - 7:00 PM in Coburn Hall
I hear these Talent Auctions can be a lot of fun, what do I need to know?
As a friend or member of the congregation your job is simple. First, save the date on your calendar so that you can attend the event; then put on your thinking cap as to what talent or item you would like to donate – this is your opportunity to show off your skills, while helping us (the UCS) meet our fund raising target. There will be wine and cheese, child care, and many of your friends in attendance.
If you want to see Unitarians battle it out over goat cheese, or pool their monies together so they can share a dinner; or be gracious and let somebody else win the prize; or drool over the amazing chocolates; or plan your summer holiday over a cabin for a weekend you just bid on; or share a sleigh ride with another family; AND get to learn what amazing talents we all have, then plan to attend the talent auction—it’s sure to leave you laughing and looking forward to the next one.
What Kinds of Things Do You Donate to a Talent Auction?
An event–a dinner, a sleigh ride, an outing to the children’s festival, the art gallery, the theatre, or an afternoon tea…
Lessons–sewing, woodworking, music, yoga, art classes, etc.
Items–home baked bread, a dessert, goat cheese, a piece of artwork, even a valuable but unused item that doesn’t reflect a talent.
Services –yard work, dog walking, babysitting, preparation of your tax return, drives to the grocery store or to church ….
Use of something–a cabin, a trailer, a pool…
Some of the items will be sold via silent auction while a live auction will be part of the entertainment for a majority of the talents on offer.
Please email me Ivan at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (306) 343-0826 with your offerings, and if you would like to volunteer some of your time to help make this event a success.
