If you have recently been to a Northwoods service, you might have heard some BUZZ about our 2021 Service Auction Fundraiser, and you might be wondering what exactly a Service Auction Fundraiser is.
The Service Auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year. How do we raise funds? By auctioning off FUN! The Service Auction is a series of SILENT AUCTIONS, LIVE AUCTIONS, and PARTY SIGN UPS! Sign Ups not only raise funds, but they also build community and relationships. Your social calendar can be filled with parties, learning experiences and fun where you get to know others in the church on a deeper level.
This year the Service Auction event will be a hybrid event, offering “seats” at home and in person. All auctions and sign-ups will be online, so no matter where you choose to attend you can still participate.
Here are examples of the FUN that will be offered at the Service Auction:
Themed baskets of all types are offered in the Silent Auction, which will start a few days before the Service Auction Event. Baskets themes might include movie night, beer tasting, cooking, or beauty. Other silent auction items might include jewelry, art, book collections, and more!
Our auctioneer starts the auction by introducing each item and then opening the floor for bids. We offer all the good stuff at our live auctions – personal art lessons, hours of babysitting or dog boarding, personal chef services, and a week in the Colorado Rockies are just a few things we’ve offered in the past.
Sign up for year-round fun! Friends and members of Northwoods offer themed parties (such as Valentine’s dinner, Kentucky Derby Party, Tequila Tasting), classes (pottery, painting, cooking, gardening, and the like), and many other special interest get-togethers (trivia nights, game nights, movies, and more!)
