As a family of faith, we continue to look for innovative ways of responding to the ongoing needs of our dynamic and diverse community. These are challenging times for us all and we’re doing what we can to sustain daily operations. Our annual fundraising events have been canceled due to Covid-19 and we need to adapt to this changing reality.
In response, we are going online to host our first annual Virtual Auction! The event will kick-off on Friday, February 12 and wind up with a fun virtual live event at 7:00 pm on Sunday, February 21. Please visit our website and read the weekly e-bulletin for the latest news and needs for the Auction!
We are asking, if you’re able, to please donate an item or service for the auction. All donations are greatly appreciated. Donation possibilities range from big to small:
There are pre-Covid and post-Covid possibilities for many of these ideas. You can also upload information about your donation to our auction website HERE.
We’re also asking for donations of bottles of wine for our Wine Cellar Spectacular ($20 minimum value). You can drop your bottle off anytime at the Rectory (during business hours) or you can purchase a bottle from Binny’s in Evanston, either in person or over the phone. Binny’s will give you a 15% discount and store the bottle for us.
Our current, pressing need is for people to solicit donations. You will be provided with businesses’ contact information and a script. If you can help please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re unable to donate at this time, you can support us by attending the auction and sharing our auction details with your friends, family, and on your social media! In times like this, we’re reminded of how interconnected we all are. Thank you for being part of our community.
