2021 Virtual Auction
Join us for our virtual annual auction
Saturday, March 13 at 6:30 p.m.!
The event will look a lot different this year but the fun and fellowship will be the same. Join us for the live virtual event including all-ages entertainment by JUCers and staff.
The silent auction will open March 7 and run through the live event. There will also be special items to bid on live the night of the follies.
The wonderful items and events donated by our members is what makes the auction a success. Please consider donating at least one item for this year’s event. Click the button below for donation ideas and to fill out the online donation form.
Cost is $10 for a single ticket, $20 for a couple, and $25 for a family. Purchase tickets online or through the HandBid app. You do not have to purchase tickets to the live event to participate in the silent suction but we encourage you to attend. A link to attend the live event will be sent out to ticket holders via email.
Our auction is 100% digital this year.
