Mark your calendars now for the most exciting social event and and fundraiser of the year for the UU Church of Kent. It’s the evening of Saturday, November 3. You’ll be hearing a lot about it for the next two months. There is something for everyone. The price of admission will give you food, non-alcoholic drinks, the chance to mingle with old and new friends, the chance to bid in the silent auction, and, the most exciting part, the verbal auction!
Start thinking about what you would like to donate to the auction. In addition to items from artwork to canning supplies and themed baskets, events are also donated. Past donations have included trips to museums, garden tours, jewelry-making classes, painting classes, home maintenance, pans of lasagna, kettles of soup, and ,of course, the ever popular dinners. Dinners can be hosted either in your home or at the church. It’s a great way to meet people and socialize outside of your normal circle.
Many volunteers will be needed to help stage this event. Right now we need someone to help Sandy Bowers coordinate donations from the congregation. We also need someone to chair the food and drink for the evening. and the good news is it’s not all cooking! If you can help with either of these, please contact Meg Milko. As time goes on we will ask for help with smaller jobs both before and during the Auction.
So, put it on your calendar now! I hope to see you there!
