The UUFRC Silent Auction is the Fellowship’s biggest event of the year and one of the most important fundraisers for the fellowship. The evening offers socializing with fellow UUFRC people, food, drink, and DJ music and dancing at the conclusion of the bidding portion of the evening. Child-care is offered on-site as well. Furthermore, many of the donated items are dinners, excursions and activities hosted by fellow UUFRC attendees throughout the following year that give winners the opportunity to spend quality time with each other all year round. 

And this year, we have a very special theme- “1969”. 1969 was a year of firsts- 1st human landed on the moon, the Summer of Love (Woodstock), The Beetles record their final album together-Abby Road, Golda Meir becomes the 1st woman Prime Minister of Israel, The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is established, Sesame Street premiered, average annual income is $8,550.00, average cost for a new house is $15,550.00, ansd gas was $.35/gallon. The world changed in “1969”. A perfect theme for the UUFRC 2018 Annual Auction.
