A progressive, inclusive, Presbyterian congregation bringing God's good news to students and community in Urbana-Champaign


Going, going, gone! Auction coming Oct. 21

Categories: Church

Our biannual auction, held to raise money to supplement our annual budget, will be Saturday night, October 21 in the Foundation dining hall. The event also provides lots of fun for everyone who attends!

For the price of a $5 ticket, you receive a meal prepared by the Presby Hall kitchen staff and the right to bid on items in both a silent auction and a live auction. There is also a sale of donated items for kids. Don Denny, a professional auctioneer, will again be donating his time to us.

To make the auction a success, we need three things from you and others at McKinley:

  • Volunteers to help with publicity, ticket sales, data input, setup and cleanup, dessert prep, as well as auctioneer assistants, clerks, and cashiers.
  • Donations of services, homemade crafts and food items, dinners and getaways, lessons, and almost anything to be auctioned off.
  • Attenders to bid on all the items and to add enthusiasm to the evening. Consider inviting non-McKinley friends. Child care is provided free of charge.

Opportunities to volunteer, donate, and buy tickets will be available at church each Sunday before the auction and electronically soon.

This is a very important event for the church, and we hope you can find a way to participate.
