Auction: Saturday, February 10, 2018

Doors open at 5:00 pm for the silent auction. The silent auction ends at 6:15 pm sharp. The live auction is from 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Dinner and socializing following till 9:30 pm.

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.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $17 at the door. Kids are $5 for ages 11-16, and free for 10 and under.

Less stuff, more fellowship!

  1. Please put in an estimated value
  2. Capitalize all important words in the title (but not “and,” “the” or “by” for example).
  3. Spell out numbers in titles (i.e Three Gold Rings, not 3 Gold Rings).
  4. Pick the most appropriate category for your event or item.
  5. Physical items should have minimum bids > $15. Services have no minimum opening bid.

  8. If you are hosting an event with more than 4 guests, you should pick a date and time.
  9. Putting in a picture of your item is very, very helpful.
  10. Put your items in early – the deadline is January 29 by midnight for the catalog.
