Are you Ready for the 13th Annual Goods & Services Auction?

Saturday, May 10th is the evening for one of the most fun and exciting events at our church.

Wine & Cheese, Silent Auction, and Wine Pull is at 6 pm and the Live Auction begins at 7 pm with Jenny Donahue as auctioneer.

Our annual auction is one of First Parish’s biggest fundraisers of the year and a whole lot of FUN! Don’t Miss It! Make it an evening for you and your family. Child care will be available. Start off with a glass of wine to sharpen your bidding skills. Peruse the silent auction table and plan your silent bidding strategy. Select a mystery bottle of wine for $20 and take a chance of getting a bottle valued at 4x that amount! And did you buy a raffle ticket for a trip to Nantucket? You will!

Then take a seat and let the live auction begin. There are wonderful things to eat, fun places to go, beautiful crafts, and useful services. All for sale to the highest bidder. The competition for coveted items is intense. You have you heart set on something. You hear bids from every corner of the room. The price is going up. YOU WANT IT. You BID $5 HIGHER (what’s another $5 for such a good cause?). You hear the auctioneer say “SOLD”! And she means TO YOU!! You outbid everyone and got the goods. Ah! The joy of winning! And if that wasn’t enough excitement, suddenly it’s intermission and time for fabulous desserts and gourmet coffee. Just when you think you can’t possibly have any more fun, the auctioneer is back on her feet with more exciting items for sale! Will you get back in the ring!? GO FOR IT – it’s a once-in-a-year opportunity to buy fun goods and services that keep on giving. A BIG WIN for you and First Parish at the same time.  

We Need Your Donated Items and Services!

Start planning your auction donations. Baskets are being requested from each church committee. Forms will be available in the next couple of weeks, online and at coffee hour. If you have any questions, please speak with one of our Auction Committee members.
