Welcome to the 2022
 “Thanks-for-Giving” Auction

We are excited to announce that the 2022 TVUUC Thanks-for-Giving Auction website is up and running and ready for donations!

The TVUUC auction is a very important fundraising event for the church (and always a fun party), but it is also a great way to bring people together! We are bringing back some (but not all) of the previous auction traditions to bring us together!

This year, all bidding will, once again, be conducted on-line, as we have done for the past two years. BUT we are adding an In-Person Party on the last day of the auction (Dec. 3) with music, food and fun, along with a chance to view some of the items being auctioned off. During the party, there will be auction volunteers to help you enter bids, if you are new to the on-line bidding or just need some help.

There will be a few other small changes.

As we hope to have more In-Person Dinners and Events this year, we will not include the category of “Dinners Delivered” (but individual food items can still be entered under “Goodies to Eat”.)

Because we cannot know in 2022 what the COVID risks will be in 2023, we are not specifying policies related to COVID safety. We do ask, however, that hosts check the CDC risk levels and guidelines in effect at the time of your event and comply with them. Hosts may also add further restrictions if they choose (such as COVID tests taken on the day of the event), possibly at the request of the guests.
