The Big UUSA Spring Fundraiser!

Minimize

Art Sale and Auction a Smashing Success!

Our first fund-raising event in our new meetinghouse could not have been more successful. We met our community outreach and fund-raising goals and exceeded our expectations in terms of bringing in people from the broader community. The music, wine and cheese and artwork descriptions encouraged visitors to linger and chat. The Tiffany Angel was also a draw both bringing people in as well as extending their visit. The best news is we raised $5000 in support of the current fiscal year (2013-14) budget!

Many people did many things, large and small, to make this event so successful. These included donating art, buying art, donating wine, spreading the word, bringing friends and family, selling raffle tickets, serving as cashier, wrapping purchases, serving food and wine, playing music, setting-up, cleaning-up, making and posting signs, painting a banner, greeting guests, placing and retrieving street sandwich board signs, assisting with the silent auction, educating about our Tiffany Angel window and more. We could not have done this without all their support: Carol Rothery, Janis Gray, Anne Perkins, Mary Beth Seminario, June Guild, Alison Wohler, Willie Eaton, Rebecca Fricke, John Barbaro, Kenton Tharp, Paula Costain, Carol Johnson, Susan  and Steve Rice, Gordon and Mary Wyse, Libby Walton-Stanforth, Sue Kelly, Carolyn and Kyle Cave, Jay and Jan Stryker, Howard Apley, Larry Daniele, Kip Johnson, Carolyn Holstein, Mike and Lynn Sussman, Betsy Loughran, Linda Callahan, Betsey Johnson, Ted and Elizabeth Alcaide, Pete and Sophie Rogers, Helene Lambert, George Sulzner, Joe Flueckiger, Barbara Yaukey, Courtney Gordon and Chas Stevenson.

Your Art Sale/Auction Coordinators, Margaret Manson, Rachel Peterson, Fran Plumer, and Sandy Sladen

The usual disclaimer is "Oh I'm spiritual, but not religious."  Personally I believe we are all spiritual AND religious, but I put a different definition to the word religious, one I think should be more commonly used.  Maybe we UUs are a good place to start.
