2017 Church Auction - FUN is Around the Corner!
Our fabulous annual church auction is coming your way! Bring your calendars and your appetites for a free Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday, March 11th at 5:00 pm.
This is the social planning event of the year! For those of you who are new, St. Barnabas hosts this auction to enhance the fellowship of our church, doubling as our biggest fundraiser.
Think up an activity to host, and we will help auction it off! Offer a family game night, a film, a backyard BBQ for two or more families, a book discussion, an ice cream social, a stone soup party - anything that two or more people can do together. Are you concerned that you live in a small place? Think outside the box - co-host with someone with a bigger place, or have your event at the church or other public location. If you need some ideas, please reach out to anyone on the auction committee: Heather Frazier, Bill and Dee Frazier, Lynn and Karen Hoffman, Timothy and Elizabeth Hepp, Kristin Nordenholtz, Warren and Becky Blanc, Neil Stock, Jim and Barbara Banks, Jim and Karen Esten, Jennie Creasey, Lena Potyondy, or Bill and Kathryn Johnson.
Check out the auction calendar (located on the table in Luken’s Wing), fill out a donor form (for each event) no later than February 26th. The auction booklet will be available on March 5th for 2017 dreaming and scheming.
Remember to pick up a poster board to promote each of your activities, and use the same titles and descriptions as your submission form.
For more, continue on for AUCTION 101:
As we continue to celebrate being back in our home, hosting or participating in auction events are a great way to create and enjoy fellowship and meet new members of our congregation. Best of all, they’re fun!
The Auction this year is Saturday, March 11th with registration will begin at 4:30 pm, auction beginning at 5:00 pm, with events for all ages and price ranges. The free spaghetti dinner and beverages are for all to enjoy. Please come and partake in this special evening of friendship and laughter. All are welcome at our table! Sign up sheet is on the auction table – please let us know if you are attending so we can have plenty of yummy food and if you need a sitter.
We will be enjoying a Mardi Gras celebration this year. Volunteers are needed on the big day to help set up at 9:30 am. Other volunteer opportunities include helping Jim Esten in the kitchen prepare the dinner, kitchen helpers during the dinner, or clean up. The sign-up sheet will be on the auction table – please let us know how you can help.
Most importantly, please don’t forget to host items for the auction. For new members of our parish, our auction was started to promote community, so the items in the auction are not things but gatherings. Having trouble thinking of an event to host? Is there a favorite trail you like to hike, book you like to read, food you like to cook and serve? Is there an idea you’ve had but weren’t sure you could get people to commit? That’s how our Murder Mystery Dinner got started! It doesn’t have to be a grand production for a grand time to be had by all.
How to host an event, you ask? Simple, fill out the host form found on the table outside the sanctuary, or email the following information to Karen Hoffman: Name of Event, Date, Who is Hosting, Starting Price Per Person, Maximum number of Attendees, a brief description of your event. Write your event on the auction calendar (on the auction table), make a poster with all the information bold and clear. (Boards are supplied by the auction committee.) This is a good place to put pictures, information like if the event is family friendly or adult only, if a meal is served or just snacks, etc. Please use the same name of the event on the poster that you used on the donation form that you submitted so people can easily find your event.
