We are excited to announce that we will be holding a "Time, Talent and Treasure" auction in October! This event will combine both a silent and an exciting live auction, with thanks to Graham Auctions for providing a professional live auctioneer.
We are asking parishioners to consider what they can donate towards the auction. We hope that the gifts being offered for auction will reflect the uniqueness of those donating them and be appreciated by those who succeed in bidding on them. Kathie MacDuff is happy to sit down and brainstorm with you about what your donation could be.
Here are some fun suggestions:
- a piece of art (done by you!)
- a mystery dinner for 4 (or 2 or 6)
- a gourmet breakfast
- an excursion and picnic lunch for a family
- a crocheted blanket
- pet care for 2 weekends
- a specialty cake
- a “Month of Sundays” desserts
- a French dinner
- handyman service for 2 days
- gardening help
- decadent brownies
- family portrait
- rake lawn in spring or fall
As well, please consider approaching businesses that you know and ask if they'd be willing to donate an item/gift certificate for our auction. The benefit for them is with the live auction, their donation will receive full attention from a very captive audience - very good advertising for their business!
See below to download a PDF Donation Form which needs to be filled out and handed into Kathie MacDuff as soon as possible. You can also email back to the church at [email protected] If you would like help filling out the "Description and Details" portion of this form, please get in touch with Jennifer Sharman and she'd be happy to help.
All proceeds of this auction will go to supporting the various aspects of the ministry of the Church of the Good Shepherd.
