Unitarian Universalist Church of Kent Dinner and Live Auction

Welcome Home

Spreading the Auction Love Around in 2023

The Thanks4Giving Auction Team has been looking for ways to spread the festivities out in 2023. This year the Auction will be presented in two parts (with a third bonus event). Look for our online Silent Auction later in November, where you will find baskets, business donations (tickets, gift certificates, and the like), and interesting and desirable items donated by you and your friends from the Church. We're also planning a bonus Rummage Sale in June, where you'll be able to donate your gently-used treasures, and find some bargains of your own.

But on Saturday, May 6 the main event is our "Welcome Home" Dinner and Live Auction in Hobbs Hall. You are invited to donate services, events, dinners, and very special one-of-a-kind handmade works of art and craft to be auctioned off in person and on Zoom at this gala. We also invite you to offer fixed-price events, outings, or services which everyone will be able to purchase by sign-up (until they’re sold out!). When you attend the event, you'll have the opportunity to fill up your social calendar for the coming year, order homemade food for personal delivery, buy a lovingly crafted work of art, or purchase a valuable service offered by someone you know. Or just come and enjoy some good food and fellowship! See our Frequently Asked Questions to find out how you can participate! Questions? Contact the auction committee by email at auction@kentuu.org!

With the live auction only 42 days away, we're not quite ready to accept your donations yet...

Donations will be accepted starting April 2, and the deadline is April 30 by midnight

Tickets to the dinner and live auction will also go on sale on April 2.
