Halloween Heart & Hand Auction Party: Oct 28th!! Mark your calendar and join the “skeleton” crew!
Ready to (finally) have a fun party and raise much-needed funds for the church? Our big FUNdraiser is returning as an in-person event Friday, October 28—note the new date! Enjoy costumes, conversation, Halloween activities, door prizes, and a big silent auction where you can actually see the donated items! And a delicious potluck of appetizers/desserts and a cash bar if safety allows.
However, our bare bones “skeleton” crew really needs your help to make this happen. Past auction chairs are not available to run the show, but can provide advice, training and do particular tasks. Donna Neff and Walt Jesteadt have stepped up to head the “end game” of the silent auction and party, but are in North Dakota until auction week. The “front end” of collecting donations and data entry to create the catalog are critical tasks now—and quite easy to learn and do. Many hands—light work!
Please say “yes” if the Ministry Team Council (MTC) contacts you to ask for help! Better yet, contact them to see what needs doing and find a task that suits you. With an eye to the future, the more people who learn a few auctions tasks or “shadow” how it works, the better shape we are for next time!! Email: MTC@firstuuomaha.org.
Below are a few key specific needs:
Donation data entry: Collect donations (on-line or on paper from church) and learn how to enter information about an auction donation into the Auctria software. Multiple people can enter data. Contact donors if missing information and contact Child Care coordinator if childcare requested for an auction event at church.
Donation pickup and safe storage: As needed from donors, pickup auction items and bring to church for storage. The Skeleton Crew awaits your response!
