The 2024 ImpromptUU Auction: Unitarians Gone Green…Again!

Saturday, May 11 at 6 pm

Join us again this year for our annual auction fundraiser! This year, we are focusing on experiences, events, classes, tours, meals, (and a few items) that raise awareness about sustainability and eco-friendly, earth-friendly living, eating, and visiting. 

Here’s how you can help!

1. Donate – We greatly appreciated your generous donations for 2023.  We would love to hear from you if you can donate again. You may want to donate something similar or maybe something different… or maybe you want to take a break from donating…any of these are fine. If donating is for you this year, please visit our website and submit our donation form. The new website will support the auction team in streamlining our processes.

2. Register – If you know you will be attending, bidding, signing up, or buying – please consider registering in advance via the new website to help our check-in process move faster on event night.

3. Volunteer – if you have some time or energy to spare, we have ways you can help:
 – help us staff the auction info table between and after services,
 – station shifts are available on auction night,
 – setup chairs and tables in advance,
 – help cleanup and wash glasses,
 – and don’t forget…we also need auctioneers!

Stop by the auction table on Sunday to signup or feel free to email the auction team at
