Planning the UUCT Auction has begun! If you’re new to the auction, here’s how it works — The auction is a traditional fundraiser with multiple purposes:
- Raising money for UUCT
- Filling out our social calendars with fun events while getting to know each other
- Picking up or letting go of some really cool stuff
The event itself is a fun-filled evening with refreshments, good natured bidding wars, and entertaining auctioneers who keep things hopping.
