candyheartse 632812019 First UU Auction Fundraiser

Our Bidding on the Side of Love Auction was a great success and we all had a blast!  Thanks to everyone for their attendance, donations, and generous support.

It looks like we knocked it out of the park - at this point we have raised over $34,000 - well over our $30,000 budget goal.  Hooray!!!

There are still some open spots at various events we will sell for the next two Sundays 2/18 and 2/25 in Fellowship Hall.  You can also settle up there if you missed checkout.

In addition to those who provided food and donated wonderful events, services, and items (too many to list here), please join us in appreciating the hearty team efforts from everyone who helped make it all run so smoothly!

Your efforts are very much appreciated - Thank You All!!
