The JUC annual auction is back and better than ever!

This year’s event is all about having FUN together! There are in-person and online options so everyone can join, even the kids (we’ll have childcare available for those under 5). That’s right, this event is all-ages so get ready for some multigenerational, interactive fellowship as we raise money for our beloved JUC.
What can you expect from this year’s event?

FUN! Get dressed up! Wear your spring colors (or spring finest). Come ready to play together!
FOOD! You can’t bid on an empty stomach so light hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks will be served at the in-person event.
FELLOWSHIP! Get to know your fellow JUCers with games and activities for all-ages designed to build a sense of community.
FUNDRAISING! Special event-only auction items will be featured during the live program. We’ll also play fundraising games and have a raffle to enter. The silent auction will close at 5pm.

The auction is an all-ages event!

The social hour portion of the afternoon will feature games and activities for everyone to have fun together. During the live program, in-person children can join their parents in the sanctuary or check in to the special Children’s Area featuring craft time, the Spring Fling Store, movie, and more. Childcare will be available for those under 5.

Let’s keep the party going!

This year’s event is early, from 3-5 pm, so why not continue the fun into the evening? Consider attending an After Party Event directly after the auction. Dinners, Happy Hours, and even Theater Experiences will be available for purchase in a special category.

Bidding is Open!!

Bid on and purchase items and event though 5pm Saturday.

Volunteers needed!

It takes many hands to make this event a success. Please sign up for a shift.
