Getting Ready for the Auction, March 6 update

Are You Ready for the Auction?

Wondering how to participate? Here’s a checklist to help make sure you won’t miss any part of the fun!What Shall I Donate To The Auction?

Some of the best items are those donated by First Parish members and friends! Wondering what to donate this year? The possibilities are endless: pool parties, cookouts, and dinners are always a hit and they keep the fun going throughout the year. Maybe you’d like to host a brunch or dinner….or perhaps a Super Bowl party next February (Go Pats!). And don’t forget to ask some of your favorite merchants to donate a gift certificate. Submit your donation online by March 16. Auction Donation Form.

Do you have some things you can’t seem to get done? Consider a “reverse auction item”. You describe the service (leaf raking, computer support, organizing) and how much you are willing to “pay”. Someone willing and able to do the work will volunteer and you “buy” the item for the amount you specified by donating that amount to First Parish. Start crossing items off your to-do list with a reverse auction item. Submit online by March 16th.  Reverse Auction Form

What About Volunteering?

Getting ready for the Auction and helping out behind the scenes are also fun and a great way to get to know folks and support First Parish. The Auction Team needs help with setting up during the day on April 6th, helping setting up, serve food, and bringing the Parish Hall back to normal after the Auction ends.

What Else Is Important To Know?

The evening will begin at 6:00 with appetizers, wine, beer, and soft drinks while we peruse and bid on silent auction items. A buffet supper will be served and then we’ll move into the lively verbal auction!

There will be childcare with pizza and a program for the kids. RSVP by April 1st for childcare.
