Each of us has talents, knowledge, tools, and possessions that can generate auction items. Gourmet cooks bake desserts or offer dinner parties. Those endowed with repair skills and strength offer a few hours of weed pulling, hauling, or handyman services. People donate sunset cruises on Puget Sound and weekends in beach cabins. Gifted crafters knit scarves and bead necklaces. Members share their expertise by donating a few hours of computer help, bird watching tours, and lessons. People join together to host events, such as movie nights and parties. Each auction item is made valuable by the talents, treasure, and time that our friends in the EUUC community gave for their donation.
The other side of this fundraiser is attending the Auction—enjoy the social occasion and purchase those dinners, scarves, and services.
