Fun & Fund Raising Events
At First UU we annually raise approximately $12,000 through our Fun & Fund Raising events. We believe that raising money doesn’t have to be a chore. Our funds are raised by hosting FUN social events. Annual Fun & Fund Raising events include:
Holiday Dinner – An opportunity to put on your holiday best, bring your special china and crystal place settings and a covered dish to church for an evening of food and singing. This year’s dinner will be held on Sunday, December 18 at 5 p.m..
Goods and Services Auction – Our most profitable event for raising both fun and funds. Goods offered include theme baskets, furniture, artwork, and collectibles. Also bid on rides to the airport, child care, a mystery dinner, Thank GUS (the Great Universal Spirit) It’s Friday, help with yard work and house repairs. Professional Auctioneer Mike Chernago creates a fun and entertaining evening. Child care is provided.
Winter Soup & Bread Lunches – During the winter months join us once a month after the Sunday service for a bowl of soup and bread. Those attending are invited to bring salads and desserts to share. A “Give as you are able basket” sits at the end of the serving table. All proceeds support our Minister’s Discretionary Aide Fund.
