UUCB offers many special events between September and June: music, drama, worship, and much more. Come join us!
Dear UUCB community,
This year's spring silent auction will take place in the Social Hall on three Sundays, May 4 through May 18. Our goal is to make at least $5,000 through congregants buying services, spaces at events, gift certificates, and objects of value donated by other congregants and outside businesses and organizations.
Please plan to bid, and please donate something if you can—individually, with a partner, or as a group (like a chalice circle or committee). Here are some ideas:
- Theme baskets (e.g. food, wine, movie night, bath & beauty, car, reading)
- Artistic creations (jewelry, ceramics, photographs, paintings ...)
- Services—professional or not (babysitting, shopping, gardening, mending, car washing, computer or other advice, lessons, bodywork, rides to/from airport, music, repairs, catering, baking ...)
- Getaways (a stay in your vacation home? frequent flyer miles?)
- Day of sailing, gourmet or ethnic dinner, brunch, hike and food, pool party, behind-the-scenes tour, game night ...
- “White elephant” items that are in like-new condition and useful, funny, or both ($20 minimum value, please)
- Dinners and other parties are especially successful FUNdraisers that help build community, so please think about hosting one, especially if you haven’t done so yet this year. Be creative! Events can be scheduled any time from June through November; we will do our best to prevent date conflicts.
Please try to get your donation forms (download here) in early (before Easter, April 20) so we can avoid a last-minute rush and include your items in the catalog that will be distributed on April 27th and posted on the church website. You can pick up extra copies of the form at the members’ information table. There is also a slightly different form and letter for outside businesses, in case you are willing to suggest this as a marketing opportunity for someone. I could email you any of these.
Thanks in advance,
On Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. Kensington Symphony Orchestra and the choirs of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley and the San Francisco Society of Unitarian Universalists perform Puccini's delightful "Gloria," with Rod Lowe, tenor, and Richard Fey, baritone. Rounding out the program, Mozart's duet from Cosi fan tutte, "Ah, guarda sorella," features soprano Marcelle Dronkers and mezzo Meghan Dibble, and Bryan Baker, who shares conducting duties with Geoffrey Gallegos, is soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto K.467 in C Major.
Tickets: $20-General Admission, $15-Seniors, http://www.brownpapertickets.com or at the door; no one turned away for lack of funds.
