Spring Brunch

Our church fellowship has an annual auction fundraising event for the missionaries. There are open auction and the silent auction. Members of the group donate goods or activities for auction. We then bid on the items and all proceeds go to the missionaries.

My husband and I donated a steak dinner event, and the bid went up to $400 from two couples. A friend and I sponsored a silent auction of brunch for 12 ladies with $25 each. There were more ladies who wanted to sign up, but it quickly filled all the spots.

We signed up for five silent auction events and bid for two open auctions. One of the silent auction I got was a Spring Brunch held last Saturday. The hostess decorated her home with Paris theme. The co-hostesses did a fabulous job to make the event memorable. The food was delicious and beautiful. Being with this almost 30 years of long-time friends is always a delight and enjoyable.

Glitz Event

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!)
