ALUUC has several fundraisers throughout the year that are planned as part of our Annual budget. More importantly, these are FUN-raisers, too! At a ALUUC fundraiser you will find good food, music, and conversation, in addition to opportunities to contribute to ALUUC. We have 2-3 planned regular fundraisers, and several pop-up fundraisers.
Below is a listing of our regular fundraisers which link to more in-depth detail pages. Hope to see you there!
Fantasy Auction – Spring
March 7, 2020
Live Auctions, Silent Auctions, and Raffles! And with a fun fantastic theme to wrap it all up!
Our biggest fundraiser of the year is a fun party filled with complimentary food, beverages, and live entertainment. We pick a relevant theme every year with decorations and entertainment to match! Our Silent Auction items and services are numerous, and our amazing Live Auction items and services are presented by our very own auctioneer, Michael Plog!
ALUUC accepts cash, check, or credit card via Square at Fantasy Auctions.
Eco Camp Kickoff Party – July
FUNdraiser & Volunteer-Raiser
Eco Camp is our signature Free Week-Long Ecology Day Camp for Children that we put on in the last week of July. We put this camp on for free for students ages 5-12, and teen counselors 13 and up. We are able to put this wonderful camp on for free every year thanks to wonderful private donations from our congregation’ members and friends, camper parents, camper grandparents, aunts, uncles, guardians, etc. A few weeks before camp starts, we hold a special Eco Camp Kickoff Party that is usually a cookout, and which offers an opportunity to make a donation, and/or signup for a volunteer shift during camp week.
ALUUC accepts cash or check for Eco Camp donations.
Outdoor Flea Market – Fall
Got something to sell but no place to sell it? ALUUC is the place to come! Rent a booth, bring your stuff, sell it and keep the proceeds (or donate back to the congregation)! You may take advantage of this opportunity to rent a booth and sell your gently used items, or come and wander through the booths to find the perfect treasure you didn’t yet know you need!
The outdoor Market takes place on our “green” parking lot extension.
Cost to Attend as a Shopper: Free!
ALUUC table rentals fees can be paid with cash, check, or credit card via PayPal on our Registration Form.
*Please note, that this Outdoor Flea Market is a spiritual successor to our previous Annual Garage Sale – ALUUC’s “Trash & Treasure Sale”, which we put on with much flair for 19 years. After much discussion, we decided that our 19th year would be our last, due to the stress and demand it put on our volunteers and our building.
Arts & Craft Fair – Winter
December 4-5, 2020
Our Annual Arts & Craft Fair is a Friday & Saturday in the Winter, with a Preview Dinner on Friday Night, and Free Admission Regular Sale on Saturday. At our Arts & Craft Fair, you will find Unique Gifts, Beautiful Art, and Amazing Crafts, with ALL items handcrafted by our Local Artisans.
