Donate to the auction by midnight January 19th!

Have you learned to love shopping online?  Shop for a cause!  Auction and Eco-Justice are teaming up to bring you food, fun, frolic, and guilt-free stuff.

Good Stuff! lasts from January 20–27.  Bid on gently used items and crafts.  What a green way to shop!  A Blue Boat Home fold-away shopping tote that fits in a pocket makes a great eco-friendly gift.  Or buy one for yourself if you usually forget other bags in the car.  Ahem.  Framed art, crafts, birdhouses, and crystal are already online.

Food, Fun & Frolic! runs from January 28 until February 4.  Bid on events, meals, foods, and classes.  Want to learn about solar panels or recycling, go kayaking or on an art walk, choose a pie for a special occasion, or just need to have dinner with UU friends?  These are some of the 2022 offerings are online.

Celebrate with us on February 5 @ 6:00 pm. The Auction 2022 Celebration will take place in-person or virtually depending on COVID.  Either event will have a signature cocktail, live entertainment, and the live auction.  If in-person, there will be appetizers, bake sale, and various libations.

Donate something small or large.  Just join the fun and anticipation.  Need ideas for donations?  Ready to donate?
