Dining for Dollar$ Auction

Dining for Dollar$ Another Big Hit!

The 12th annual Dining for Dollar$ marked another year of success! What is this you ask? Church folks host an event such as a dinner, museum tour, party or craft workshop and other people bid on the event in a silent auction. The events are scheduled for any time from June of 2017 until May of 2018. In 2016 year we had over 100 events and over $44,000 in winning bids contributed to the church’s budget – our most important fundraising activity! We had a number of people host for their very first time. This is a fun opportunity to meet new people and strengthen community.

This year's silent auction took place in Bard Hall between and after services for three consecutive Sundays. The 2017 co-chairs were Laurie Crehan, Chris Chase and Robie Evans.
