HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Donate Personal Items From You. Do you have a skill, a talent, a service you provide, something you make? Consider donating (e.g., tutoring, lessons, catering, baking/cooking, childcare, artwork, photography, computer work, consultation, yardwork, sewing, music, automobile repair, subcontract work, gift baskets, an item/service from your business, the ideas are endless). Do you have new or valuable items at home that you don’t need? Consider donating (e.g., jewelry, collectibles, furniture, appliances, again the possibilities are endless – no used “yard sale” type items please).
Buy Items to Donate. Purchase something new that you think would auction well and people would like to buy (e.g., TVs, electronic items, gift cards, plants, makeup, services, etc.).
Ask Others to Donate. Ask friends, family or neighbors who own local businesses, and who might donate to a good cause (and get some publicity in the process). Ask businesses around the area for donations (e.g., gift cards, services, items, etc.).
Make Dessert. Part of our evening will include a live dessert auction (as well as desserts we will include in the silent auction), and we will need desserts to auction off to tables and individuals for our evening dessert or to take home. Volunteer to make or purchase a fancy dessert for the evening.
Attend the Auction and Bid on Items. This year our focus is children of the world, specifically in areas where we know missionaries who are serving (such as Senegal and Peru, where our next two teams are going to help serve children), and help people from EBC to gain a deeper awareness of and a heart for missions. Our philosophy for the evening is that many people want to give to missions at EBC. The auction gives people the chance to come and have a Senegalese-themed dinner, enjoy hearing an African choir sing, hear from our Senegal team, get to buy some things to take home, and help to support EBC mission trips.
Here is an example: You and your spouse want to give $150 (or you fill in the amount) to missions. Buy two tickets for $20 (you get dinner and a fun evening of entertainment). Bring $130 to bid on items in the silent or live dessert auctions. Take home things you like, and at the same time, help support missions!
Thank you for helping make a difference in the lives of those who desire to go and share the love of Jesus Christ!
