The 11th annual Dining for Dollar$ returns! What is this you ask? You host an event such as a dinner, museum tour, park party, craft workshop and we bid on your event in a silent auction. The events are scheduled for any time from June of 2016 until May of 2017. Last year was a record breaker of 147 events and over $60,000 in winning bids contributed to the church’s budget – our most important fundraising activity! We had a number of people host for their very first time. This is a fun opportunity to meet new people and strengthen community.
Now is the time to consider what you would like to offer to host. We are accepting your offers to host an event through March 27, but earlier submissions really help us prepare the bidding booklet.Look for information about Dining for Dollar$ on the patio starting February 28, every Sunday in March and in upcoming issues of The Window.
You may use the on-line form (preferred) to submit an event or download the host form and email Sue Marberry (firstname.lastname@example.org) or drop it off at the D4$ patio table. Forms and information also available at South Bay.
Your event will be printed in a colorful bidding booklet with its description and minimum bid and distributed in April. The silent auction will take place in Bard Hall between and after services for three consecutive Sundays starting the first week of May.
