Did you hear? The Parish Picnic is going to be this August 13 - 15!
Are you ready to mingle with fellow parishioners and community members? Then this year’s Parish Fest will certainly meet your needs! One of the most popular events at Parish Fest is the Silent Auction and it will be back again this year!
The Silent Auction will once again have three opportunities for you to join in the fun and help make it a success!
First, the ever popular Silent Auction gift baskets. Watch for a reverse collection next weekend to give you ideas on new items to donate. Also, were you busy making homemade crafts while inside during the pandemic? We’d love to have your donations of handcrafted items of all kinds. If you’re a woodworker, metalworker, quilter, knitter, sewer, brew master, wine maker or other kind of crafter, consider sharing your talents with the Silent Auction. Remember we are seeking new items to include in the baskets.
Second, the in-demand bucket raffles will return! Do you need ideas on how to help support the Silent Auction? Ask your employer or favorite store for a donation. This is a charitable contribution for businesses so all you have to do is ask!
Third, the infamous mystery instant win gift cards will be available! Try your luck at picking an envelope for just $10. Each envelope has a prize guarantee value of at least $10 and many envelopes hold higher value prizes. See the signup genius on the Parish website for gift card donation ideas.
We are also in need of larger sized baskets to fill with items for the Auction. Donations and baskets can be dropped off at the Parish Office by July 30th. Cash donations are also welcome for the committee to purchase new and exciting items. If you need ideas, please contact the parish office.
Let’s make this another great year for Parish Fest and the Silent Auction! Thank you!
