Note:   Please do not bring donated items to the church before the auction.

After the auction closes, you can see who bought your donation. Log into the Auction website with your phone number and PIN. On any page in the auction website, click on My Statement at the top of the page. Under Items Donated, you will see the names and phone numbers of the person(s) who bought your items. If you click on the name, you can send an e-mail. If you need help finding the names of the Buyer(s), contact the Auction Committee.

Because late bids on unsold items will be accepted until 8:00 pm on Sunday, December 12, please check your statement again after that time.

If you have donated a physical item, please contact the buyer as soon as possible to arrange for delivery. You can offer to deliver the item to the person at home, arrange a time to meet in the TVUUC parking lot, or deliver the item to TVUUC on one of the following days:

Monday, December 6 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm

Monday, December 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm

Although the church will probably be closed, we will post a note on the front door with a phone number you can call, if you don’t see us. One of the Auction Volunteers will come to the door and take your item so it can be picked up by the Buyer on the dates listed below.

IMPORTANT:  Please attach a label to the item giving the following information:

  • Item Number in the Catalog
  • Name and phone number of the Buyer

For Food Items (Goodies to Eat), click here for separate instructions. We ask that you arrange for delivery of any food items directly to the Buyer, so we do not have food left in the church. However, if this will be difficult for you, contact the Auction Committee or call Wendy Syer at 865-579-3679 to make special arrangements.
