We are sad. The RE Council was planning another in-person, outdoor event for us, this time a Black Lives Matter vigil on the afternoon of our Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday Service. With local infection rates high and hospitalizations soaring, we don’t think it’s a good idea. As soon as we are comfortable gathering outside in larger groups, we’ll come up with another idea!
We definitely had a little help from our friends and we were stunned! You, the UUCA congregation, came through with warm and generous participation and support for the 2020 auction. After re-imagining the auction completely in April, the committee was pleased to be able to offer 134 items and activities in our online silent and live auctions. And you shone with your lively bidding! And your cash donations! And your talent and entertainment!
Our net income (after expenses) was nearly $26,500. And we had an exciting online live auction and gala, complete with musical and other entertainment, including from our youth.
Thanks to all who participated in this year’s auction, and to the Auction Committee who made it happen.
Auction Committee members: Tory Schmitz, Margaret McAlister, Ann McLellan, Deb Holden, Marta Reese, Fredda Mangel, Sally Witkamp, Ann Perry, Connie Silver, Judy Galloway, and Sherry Lundquist, with Linda Topp providing administrative and other valuable support.
