Dining for Dollar$ Auction

Dining for Dollar$ Is Here

The 12th 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 2017 until May of 2018. Last 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.

The silent auction will take place in Bard Hall between and after services for three consecutive Sundays starting April 30th, and ending May 14th.

Laurie Crehan, Chris Chase and Robie Evans, co-chairs D4$ 2017

Not able to be present to bid? You may bid by proxy. Contact Sylvia Ollinger, at 858-232-6056 or sjolling06@hotmail.com (preferred).
