Auction Info, Donation Info, and Ideas

We’re having an online auction! For our successful auction, we need LOTS of fun and interesting items to bid on!

This year, because of the still-evolving pandemic, your dinners, parties, and excursions may need to be adapted in order to offer them safely. Please monitor and TUUC’s gathering guidelines. It is recommended that gatherings be outdoors. Below is a list of Auction Donation Ideas for inspiration. Some events/gatherings will have a fixed number of spots available with a fixed price. Others (such as a weekend getaway for two for example) will be bid upon in the silent auction format. Tangible items will be added to the silent auction.

Donations accepted until Wednesday, February 23.

Bidding open Thursday, February 24 until Sunday, February 27 at 10:00 p.m.

Once you’ve decided on what you would like to donate to the 2022 auction, go to be sure to fill in a separate “Donate Items form for each item you are donating, Please include a photo, if possible.
