The UUCM Auction: An Annual Tradition with a new Twist

The UUCM Auction is held each year to create a fun community-building event for our members and friends, and to raise money for the UUCM General Fund. The Auction has grown to be one of the most anticipated events on the UUCM Social Calendar and our largest fundraiser. Last year we raised over $24,000.

Although our traditional evening of silent and live auctions at the church is not possible this year, the auction will still happen! The 2020 edition of the Annual UUCM Auction will have two parts. An online silent auction will run from October 30 through November 8. A live auction will be held via Zoom on Saturday evening, November 7th, at 6:30pm.

We hope you will participate in the auction fun. Put the dates on your calendar and plan to engage in both the online silent auction and the live auction event. And since the auction cannot happen without donations, please consider donating an item, event, or experience.

Donate to Express Metals and Support Youth at UUCM

Want to save money, help the environment and support the Youth at UUCM? Express Metals in Hopkins will take a large variety of products that contain metal – Lawn mowers, snow blowers, BBQ grills, washers, dryers, lead acid batteries and more.

When dropping off the items, just mention that you want the proceeds to go to the UUCM – Youth Group.  Our Youth set this up about 4 – 5 years ago to raise money and aid the environment by keeping recyclable material out of landfills.
