Fun, Friends, Fellowship…All for a Worthy Cause

The 2018 Outreach Benefit is Friday, April 27 and we knew you’d want to gather your friends and plan to bid on the exciting offerings in the live and silent auctions.  If you don’t have your tickets yet, it’s not too late but you need to let us know you are coming soon to make sure we have room for you.

We have a fun evening planned, with over 75 bottles in the wine pull and an exciting game of Heads or Tails for all to play. The winner receives a weekend stay near Lake Geneva in a home with a pool that sleeps 16, as well as $200 in Lettuce Entertain You gift certificates. We will conclude the evening with a paddle raise and the raffle pull for two United Airlines first/business class tickets.*

The live auction items are listed below.  Our super silent auction—so silent you are just hearing about it now—has some very special wine collections and a few other items that you won’t want to miss.  Take your time perusing the list and start dreaming, or consult the Church website for a complete list of items.
