Welcome to OUUC’s 2021 Online Auction! With the advent of spring, vaccines, and reopenings raising our spirits, hope is in the air and it’s time to celebrate! Let’s do our part in creating a bright future for both OUUC and our community.

Our vital fundraising auction will once again be completely online. You’ll have an entire week to peruse items and place bids on the auction website. Also, Zoom in on our entertaining show on April 24 at 5:00 pm and participate in a live auction of select items!

Step 1: Donate! Offer donations by clicking on the Donate an Item tab at the top of the auction website.  Complete the form and upload pictures if desired (help is available if needed!) Deadline for Donations: Sunday, April 11

Brainstorm unique, enticing COVID-friendly donation ideas. (Review past donations on the auction website above.) Popular items include stay-at-home services, porch deliveries, virtual gatherings, games, staycations, gift cards, online demonstrations, and homemade and handcrafted items. While we can now include small gatherings as the governor’s restrictions allow, please include a masked, socially-distanced plan for all in-person donation events.

Step 2: The 2021 catalog is open for viewing now on the auction website: Get a sneak preview before bidding begins and make your wish list! Visit the site often to be sure your bids stick to secure the items you want! Online bidding week: April 17-25.

Step 3: Mark your calendar for 5:00 pm on April 24 for “live” entertainment and a “live” auction of selected items.

Each of us plays an important role in keeping OUUC strong. Our generosity, in both donating and bidding, stretches and strengthens the web of our beloved community. As a bonus, each of us benefits from the deeper connections we make during each step of the auction and all that stem from its unique offerings. Let’s grow and do this together!
