Over the past three years, the Marketplace has generated over $20,000 to support UUCOB’s general operating budget, and we are pleased to announce initial plans for the 2017-2018 event.
This year’s MARKETPLACE activities will kick-off on Sunday, October 22 and continue through Sunday, November 19. We invite our members to offer “services, special meals, and events for purchase. The Marketplace table will be open on Sunday, October 22, 29 and Nov 5 for members to pick up Donor Forms for use in indicating the services, meals, parties, or events they wish to offer. The forms are also available on the UUCOB website. The final day for submitting your Donor forms will be Sunday, November 5.
The Marketplace’s Purchase tables will be open following services on Sunday, November 12 and 19. The final day for making purchases for your favorite services and/or events will be Sunday, November 19. All notices and invoices will be submitted to those making purchases no later than Sunday, November 26. This year, we will be providing additional information to members who purchase events and services to ensure that their events, meals, and services get onto their calendars. Thus, all events, meals, and services offered will need to have a specific date for the item on the completed Donor sheets when they are submitted.
There will be no live auction or dinner associated with the Marketplace fundraising event this year. All information, including items available for purchase, will also be posted on the UUCOB website along with weekly progress reports as the event unfolds.
Begin now to think about that exciting meal, party, outing, or other event that you would like to contribute to this year’s event. We always need additional services – such as power-washing,
- small repair jobs,
- driving services,
- music lessons,
- concerts, etc.
so there is much that all our members can contribute in order to make the Marketplace a success and generate needed funds for our Congregation’s operating budget. This year’s fund-raising goal for the Marketplace is an ambitious $8,500, so everyone’s support and participation will be most needed, welcomed, and appreciated.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to and supported the previous Marketplace fundraising projects. We are excited about the 2017-2018 event and encourage all our members to get involved. Thanks to all of you who give so generously to our great community of faith and caring!
