On November 16, First UU Church members and friends enjoyed a fun-filled evening during the 2019 Annual Auction. Many placed bids on their favorite items while enjoying good company and food. Later in the evening, there was a lot of excitement and friendly competition during the live auction.

At the end of the night we also celebrated as our fundraising goal was reached and exceeded one more time with a total of $29,550 in contributions.

The 2019 Auction would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment from many members, friends and volunteers; as well as the strong financial support from all underwriters and auction participants.

Our sincere appreciation goes to:
