2018 Church Auction


This Year’s Theme: Hooray for Hollywood!

The annual UUCSS Auction is one of the church’s most enjoyable events as well as a terrific fundraiser. It is an evening of great fun and fellowship at which donations made by UUCSS Members and Friends are auctioned off to others within the church family.

You will find everything from terrific things such as paintings; pottery and other artistic creations, to homemade baked goods made for sale the night of the Auction or promised for a later date. Many Members and Friends offer special dinners or outings, or offer services or lessons. Each donated event offers more opportunities to get to know fellow Members and Friends better.
