Bidding on the Side of Love

"Auction donations are love offerings!"

Welcome!

Our auction is an important fundraising event for the church and a great way to bring people together. Do you have a special talent, skill, or a unique service to offer? Can you host a dinner? Then you've come to the right place. If you have questions about the auction, you can reach us at auction@firstuucolumbus.org.

With the auction only 84 days away, now is the time to think about what you can donate.

To repeat donations from prior years, you can use the "Offer Again" link next to those items on your last year's statement. Starting from this year's statement, click the "2016" inside the "Other Years" box to see your last year's statement. (You can go all the way back to 2006)

If you aren't sure what to offer, browse the catalog to see what others have offered. You can view prior years there too. Pictures from prior auctions are on the church's main website.

New for 2018!

LESS STUFF, MORE FELLOWSHIP!

We are focusing on services, dinners, excursions, vacations, and fellowship activities. Any items which are added to the website will be considered but may be gently declined so that we may focus our efforts more on donations which build fellowship and community. So please keep the food related services and all the wonderful things that we can share with each other, but save those precious objects for the rummage sale.

DINNERS WILL BE LIVE OR SILENT (NOT SOME SEATS IN EACH)

We are ending the experiment of splitting dinner seats between the live and silent auctions. With fewer bid sheets all in one room, we expect you will find them more easily.

Less stuff, more fellowship!

Lunch at Corky & Lenny's
Invalid Image LinkInvalid Image Link
Travel about 2 hours north to a suburb of Cleveland to an exceptional deli. Choose from wonderful corned beef, extravagant chocolate eclairs, great pickles and so much more for lunch (Dutch treat). We will also visit Malley's chocolate store next door. You can also buy treats to take home from Corky & Lenny's. We will leave from the church at 9:00 am and be back at the church no later than 4 pm. I have room for only 3 but if another wants to drive, we could be a larger group. Add yourself to the list even if it is full if you can drive.
