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).
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, 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 dessert 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 we will focus on missions around the world, specifically in areas where we know missionaries who are serving, 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 nice dinner, enjoy some entertainment, and get to buy some things to take home, yet still help to support EBC missions trips and projects.
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, dessert and/or live 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, so all can hear!
