Our church adult fellowship has an annual auction fundraising event. Funds collected are used for the fellowship sponsored missionaries as Christmas gifts. We named the event Glitz. The idea is to create a glitzy atmosphere. The attendees feel they are so blessed and are generous to give.
Members of the group sign up to decorate the tables using their best China. Some gentlemen put on their tuxes, and ladies have a chance to show off their fashions. The auction items are donated by the group members and are auctioned off to the members. Examples of donated items are “3-day stay at a beachside condo,” or “dinner with the host at a known restaurant.” The event is a fun event of the year. The slogan is “It’s all for the missionaries!” (I decorated the first table!)
