Two things are needed to make our Auction a success – volunteers and donations. We have a very talented corps of volunteers looking for your help in Food, Beverage, Public Relations, Décor, Accounting, Set-up/Take-down and donations.

Donations are acquired and given by you. They are bid upon Auction night in silent and oral auctions or offered on fixed price sign-ups. What makes a good donation?

Donations may be a lovely or useful item you no longer use. Donations may be tickets or gift cards obtained from retailers, service providers, restaurants, theme parks, entertainment venues.

Perhaps you can offer a service such as tax-preparation, legal assistance, child sitting, gardening assistance, space organization, soups, deserts or flower arrangements or lessons/demonstration of a skill. And, of course, dinner parties and events from four to forty such as “A Night in Tuscany”, “Chinese Banquet”, “Peruvian Feast”, “A Night in Greece”, “Champagne Brunch”, “Beer, Beach and Bocce Ball”, “Balboa Park Scavenger Hunt”, “Desert Adventure”, “Trip to the Getty”, “Sail the Bay”.

Events and dinners may be as simple or ornate as the host desires. Donation forms are available at Auction table after church and in church office. Linda Gallagher or Sally Anderson. There are also opportunities to underwrite portions of auction expenses.

So let’s get moving towards our best auction ever. We are counting on you.
