Auburn Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (AUUF) has announced dates and times for its 29th annual auction. The auction is a major fundraiser that supports AUUF and the Auburn community. This year, AUUF will host silent and live auctions as separate events. The silent auction will take place over 4 days, November 18-21, to facilitate social distancing, and the live auction will be held on December 3rd. Both events are free and open to the public. Looking for unique, distinctive, or just plain wonderful gifts for your loved ones? Maybe you want to treat yourself? A one-of-a-kind shopping experience awaits you! Every year, the Auburn Unitarian Universalist Fellowship holds an auction that raises a portion of its annual budget.

Over the past almost three decades, the auction has become an area tradition, ushering in this most festive of months with food, fun, and fellowship. The twenty-ninth annual AUUF auction will be held in two parts. To promote social distancing, the AUUF Silent Auction will be held off-site at 1008 Old Mill Rd. in Auburn over a period of 4 days, November 18-21, for 2-hour intervals: Thursday Nov. 18, 2-4 p.m., Friday Nov. 19, 6-8 p.m., Saturday Nov. 20, 6-8 p.m., and Sunday Nov. 21, 2-4 p.m. Multiple days and times hope to allow flexibility for all individuals that wish to participate. Because the venue is small, only a few guests will be allowed in at a time. The AUUF Live Auction will be held on Friday, December 3rd, at the AUUF fellowship hall, 450 E. Thach Ave in Auburn at 6:30 p.m. To accommodate social distancing, the fellowship hall will operate at fifty percent capacity this year. There will also be a virtual bidding option that will allow all participants, on-site or remote, to bid on equal footing. "There's a ‘good will' element to the auction," says AUUF former minister, Rev. Diana Jordan Allende. "It strikes me as an opening into the season of joy and sharing.” Past offerings have included such items as French champagne, fine art, housewares, books, jewelry, home-cooked specialty meals for groups, a dinner for eight on the terrace from Ursula’s Catering, handmade quilts, homemade bread, pottery, vintage clothing, services such as yardwork, IT help, and more! “It’s fun to bid and fun to watch the auction,” says longtime AUUF member Teresa Rodriguez. “There is something for every size of pocket book. We usually have over 100 attendees from the community, and many of them have been coming for years.” Rodriguez adds, “This is our big fundraiser for the year and we invite everyone to be a part of it.” For more information on these free and festive events, please visit www.auuf.org/auction.
